What if schools were places where children could explore their identities and passions without worrying about gender roles? This question and more are addressed in today's show.
"Whenever you teach oppression you have to teach resistance."
Educators Jody Sokolower, Liza Gesuden, Candice Valenzuela and AJ Jennings discuss methods and opportunities for introducing conversations and curricula about sexism, patriarchy, intersectionality, gender identity and sexuality with kids from preschool to high school. The four women are all among the 50+ contributors to a new anthology from Rethinking Schools. The book and the interviews are chock-full of information and ideas that will be helpful to teachers, parents, students, relatives and friends of young people all over this country.
