Wayne Au - A Marxist Education

In A Marxist Education, professor and education acitivist Wayne Au traces both his own development as a Marxist educator and the development of Marxist educational theory. Arguing that dialectical materialism is at the heart of Marxist theory, Au uses dialectics not only to analyze the relationship between capitalism and schools, but also to understand teaching, learning, and curriculum.

UW Bothell professor and education activist (and editor at magazine and publisher Rethinking Schools) Wayne Au presents his critical analysis of the state of public education under capitalism and the prospects for radical pedagogy and reform.
