FIELD DAY: GETTING SOCIETY OUT OF SCHOOL WITH ANARCHIST EDUCATOR MATT HERN
Is institutionalizing children for six hours a day, five days a week, ten
months a year for twelve years the best way for them to flourish? If not,
then what are we doing? Matt Hern looks at the historical, philosophical
and pedagogical roots for compulsory state schooling, and begins to
imagine a way out of the schooling mess we find ourselves in.
____________________________________________

*North East Mutual Aid is an informal network of anti-capitalist
anti-authoritarians. Our purpose is to open lines of communication so that
existing groups and individuals throughout the Northeast can better
coordinate support for each other in our local actions and struggles.

May 8 in NYC will be an opportunity for you to share energy, resources,
information, and inspiration with other anti-authoritarians. Together we
will implement, utilize, and broaden the network.

Some background:
On January 1, 2004, on the 10-year anniversary of the Zapatista Uprising,
an anonymous call went out for a self-organized PGA-style network in North
America. In the Northeast, work and momentum has built from the Strategy
Session in Worcester, MA (December 6, 2003), the NCOR Conference (January
24-25, 2004) and the Gathering for Autonomy in Hartford, CT (February
28-29).
