Obviously there are stark differences between school and prison but I couldn’t get the similarities out of my mind after reading the post Learners Voice: Are we really listening? by Graham Brown-Martin in which he points to Ivan Illich’s argument from in his book “Deschooling Society” (1971)
that schools, like prisons, offices and factories have become industrialized institutions hence their similarity in the forms of rules, behaviours and organization.
Yes, it is car add but message is great.
I agree with Jackie Gerstein’s wonderful graphic –It is an educators responsibility to have our learners asking these questions every day.
