From Deficit Discourse to Dreaming Desires: re(creating) possibilities for education

Karen Zaino & Christina Chaise, CUNY Graduate Center
Friday 7/12/2019 — 1:15pm to 2:45pm — Room: Carlson 219
In this workshop, we will work with participants to briefly unpack the colonial legacies of education that haunt widespread deficit discourses in schools today. Then, we will re-write our own educational histories, focusing on the conflicts that arose when our desires were neglected or dismissed. Finally, we will use these counter-stories to envision possibilities for schooling that rejects deficit discourse and embraces desire-based education.
