THE ROUGE FORUM NEWS – CALL FOR ESSAYS FOR ISSUE #17

First posted by Adam Renner on Facebook, 26th June 2010

The Rouge Forum is a group of educators, students, and parents seeking a democratic society. We are concerned about questions like these: How can we teach against racism, national chauvinism and sexism in an increasingly authoritarian and undemocratic society? How can we gain enough real power to keep our ideals and still teach–or learn? Whose interests shall school serve in a society that is ever more unequal? We are both research and action oriented. We want to learn about equality, democracy and social justice as we simultaneously struggle to bring into practice our present understanding of what that is. We seek to build a caring inclusive community which understands that an injury to one is an injury to all. At the same time, our caring community is going to need to deal decisively with an opposition that is sometimes ruthless.

For the next issue of the Rouge Forum News, we invite essays, poetry and art from students from kindergarten through graduate school. Grad students, looking for an outlet for a working paper that you would eventually like to turn into a peer-reviewed article? Send it to us for publication and feedback in the Rouge Forum News. High school students, have a piece of poetry or drawing or comic strip that you’d like to get out to 4000 readers? Send it to us for publication in the Rouge Forum News. K-12 teachers and professors, received a good paper at the end of the spring term? Encourage your students to submit it to the Rouge Forum News.

Please send your submissions via a Microsoft word attachment to adamrenner70@gmail.com. Deadline is September 1.

Issue 17 will be published in the fall 2010. Visit http://www.rougeforum.org for past issues of the Rouge Forum News and other information about the Rouge Forum.

Capitalist Schools in Crisis

TOWARD A NATIONWIDE SCHOOL STRIKE, OCTOBER 7th 2010

A message from Rich Gibson, The Rouge Forum

Dear Friends,

Growing from the March 4th Actions, the M4 Committees have called for a nationwide school strike on October 7th, to be followed by state conferences on October 23 and 24. Shut them down and open Freedom Schools where educators, parents, students, and community people can gain and test knowledge in a reasonably free atmosphere, seeking to learn why things are as they are–and what to do.

Rescue Education from the Ruling Classes!

The Rouge Forum helped lead March 4th. Join Us!

More information on schools and society is here, at the Rouge Forum Blog: http://www.richgibson.com/blog/

Good luck to us, every one.
Rich Gibson
