Audio: Stanley Aronowitz on Popular Education in a Time of Struggle'
ireland / britain | education | link to audio Monday April 06, 2009 23:35 by Andrew recording Stanley Aronowitz - WSM (personal capacity) wsm_ireland at yahoo dot com
Recording of WSM meeting
This is a recording of Stanley Aronowitz speaking on 'Popular Education in a Time of Struggle' to a Workers Solidarity Movement meeting in the Seomra Spraoi Social centre, Dublin the end of March 2009. Stanley Aronowitz is professor of sociology, cultural studies, and urban education at the CUNY Graduate Center. He is also a veteran political activist and cultural critic and an advocate for organized labor.
This was part of an ongoing effort to get a Education Workers Network off the ground and the meeting did attract 30+ people which is pretty good for a Sunday afternoon. What was most interesting for me was both the question and the later discussion (in the pub) about anarchism in the US and the question of anarchist organisation. He's actually quite a hard line 'organisationalist' pretty much saying in the talk that those who weren't in an organisation were more properly described as sympathisers with anarchism rather than anarchists.

Lessons from the Mass Student strike in Quebec - Ireland tour September 2013 22:12 Mon 16 Sep 1 comments
In 2012 the attempt by the government to Quebec to introduce a 75% fee hike was defeated by the organisation of a mass student strike that lasted over 6 months. That fee increase was part of the global process of imposing the privatisation and commodification of education. Since the victory, organisers of the strike have been being doing speaking tours to aid the process whereby "youth and students everywhere are becoming increasingly conscious of the need to organize as a means to defend education as a social right". In September this tour reaches Ireland where we need to hear how a sustained and militant student movement that can win is built.

Commercialism in Irish schools 17:26 Wed 31 Jan 0 comments
Anyone who has had a child in primary school over the past couple of years has no doubt heard of the ‘Tesco Computers for Schools’ scheme whereby in return for vouchers collected when you do your shopping, Tesco give ‘free’ computer equipment to schools. You’ve probably also heard about Tesco’s ‘Sport For Schools and Clubs’ and SuperValu’s ‘Kids in Action’ schemes. If you’ve seen the TV ads for the SuperValu version, you’ll probably associate SuperValu with healthy, happy kids.

Irish eduction struggles: Moving from Protest to Success Feb 08 0 comments
The Education Cuts announced in October’s Budget have unleashed a wave of protest across the country. During the months of November and December approximately 120,000 people took to the streets of Dublin, Galway, Tullamore, Cork and Donegal to register their anger at the government’s attempts to make schoolchildren pay for the financial crisis. Cowen, Lenihan and O’Keefe have been left in no doubt about the level of popular opposition to these cutbacks. In addition thousands of 3rd level students have also taken to the streets and participated in marches, pickets and blockades to protest at the proposed re-introduction of fees.
An Anarchist's perspective on the Education System in Ireland Aug 16 1 comments
When the Irish education system is taken into perspective, from preschool to 3rd level, each period of transition is flawed in its own way. Strong ties between the church, the state and our primary and secondary schools affect the growth and education of children from the moment they enter the schooling system to the moment they leave.
"Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught."
