Online Event: Community Classrooms: A Radical Classroom Model Symposium – Feb 17

Posted by Social Innovations Journal on February 15, 2022


Communities hold the strength, stories, and spaces to transform oppressive urban education systems: it is time to honor this power. In this session, we will engage with a model of community-centered learning for both students and teachers that redefines the role of the neighborhood and achieves what is possible only when community partnerships transform academic spaces: radically re-imagined urban classrooms that restore all that is possible with student voice, ownership, and empowerment.


  • Understand, from a student’s view, what’s possible when teachers disrupt systemic student disempowerment through community partnerships
  • Learn how a radical model of community-centered learning actualizes student ownership in urban classrooms from a community leader’s perspective
  • Engage in a radical teacher training model to shift the power to communities in the classroom and actualize student ownership

Date and Time: Thursday, February 17, 3:30-5:00 PM
