  1. 1. The Highlander Research and Education Center in comparison to Alabama public education
  2. 2. Dialectal Education  At my school, learning wasn’t particularly dialectical. It used the children as “banks” model of education. Knowledge was strictly a one-way transfer. Teachers provided information that, for the most part, was not open to interpretation.  Conversely, The Highlander Research and Education Center stresses a dialogue between educator and student. “Horton’s Highlander Center is an exception that for more than half a century has vesseled the development of political consciousness and participative action skills.”* *Transformative Education: Across the Threshold -Will McWhinney and Laura Markos
  3. 3. The Goal of Education  The goal of education at Highlander is to empower individuals to create social change, which necessarily includes acknowledging problematic aspects of society.  Whereas my public school education, was designed to allow students to move forward from one level of education to another with the end goal of entering the work force.
  4. 4.  The public school education I received was very Euro-centric and male centric. While token efforts, such as black history month, were made to acknowledge diversity, the curriculum itself lacked alternative perspectives. There were no options for ethnic or gender studies courses. Additionally, racism and sexism were seen as problems of the past, and were not acknowledged in so far as they affect modern society.  In contrast, Highlander focuses on having a multi-cultural educational perspective and has historically been very involved in the fight for civil rights. “Highlander serves as a catalyst for grassroots organizing and movement building in Appalachia and the U.S. South.“* *http://highlandercenter.org/about-us/history/
  5. 5. Proposed Critical Pedagogical Changes  One change I would make public education in the United States is the way sex education is handled. I believe that as it stands currently, it is disempowering to women. In many cases, sex education contributes to cultural norms that stigmatize sex and evaluate a women’s worth based on perceived chastity. This contributes to rape culture, the normalization of sexual assault in our society, and affects the way women are treated in society as a whole. I believe that this mindset demeans and excuses or legitimize violence against women. I would encourage a sex education program centered on accurate information on sex and contraception presented without stigma. Models of consent should be addressed and expanded upon, beyond just the typical caveat of peer pressure. Additionally, most sex education in the US is heteronormative, and I believe this contributes to the displacement of the LGBTQ community. In order to prevent this, sex education curricula should be more inclusive of different gender identities and sexual orientation. Doing this would normalize LGBTQ individuals and, I think, lead to a more accepting society.
