Radical Professional Development

Rad PD details for FMFP 2017 will be available soon. See details from FMFP 2015 below

11:30-4:30p.m. at Laney College


RadPD will bring together educators from around the country in dialogue and skill-building. Workshops and speakers will focus on decolonization, healing, education for liberation in the classroom, and teacher organizing.

RadPD will highlight the tensions  and trauma of working for social justice in schools situated within a colonial context. Through interactive workshops, attendees will understand how K-12 educators and organizers from across the country draw from an analysis of decolonization to disrupt traditional classrooms and instead work to foster radical healing. RadPD will provide the opportunity for participants to explore the relevance of these approaches for educators across content areas and grade levels in order to develop specific skills to take back to their local areas.

There is an additional $25 fee to participate in Rad PD. The $25 fee for RadPD includes a free copy of the 2015-2016 edition of Planning to Change the World: A Lesson Plan Book for Social Justice Teachers, co-published by the Education for Liberation Network and the New York Collective of Radical Educators.


RadPD will take place on Thursday, July 9th at Met West High School, 314 E 10th St, Oakland, CA 94606
