Rights threatened: Social Movements defend public education


In 2014 IDEA celebrated 15 yearsissue 7 as a space for the convergence of struggles for public education throughout the Americas. research paper writer reviews In defense of education as a social right, we have built spaces for interchange, analysis and debate regarding privatization and the policies of dispossession of rights, http://eckmandentistry.com/hko9-how-to-write-an-essay-on-bravery/ and we have advanced in generating alternatives for emancipatory education as a central element for the construction of democratic societies.

In this issue, the reader will find articles about ten emblematic struggles carried out by diverse labour and social organizations from Canada to Argentina. In the face of offensives by transnational financial capital and its governments to take possession of education and convert it into merchandise, it is our hope that these stories contribute to a greater understanding of the importance of resistance and the construction of democratic alternatives.
