Desde las entrañas del monstruo: Article about NYCoRE in Chilean Education Magazine

Desde las entrañas del monstruo: educadores en nueva york luchando contra el neoliberalismo y el racismo

(From the Belly of the Beast: New York Educators Struggling Against Neoliberalism and Racism)

by Camila Leiva & Ariana Mangual

Below is an article written by NYCoRE members Camila Leiva and Ariana Mangual for Docencia (Teaching), a Chilean journal produced by the College of Teachers, which was founded in 1996 with the purpose of analyzing education from a political standpoint, pedagogical and professional, promoting dialogue and discussion among teachers.

The magazine is published three times a year (May, August and December), and is distributed throughout Chile, to a variety of players involved in the world of education: classroom teachers, school administrators, leaders of the College of Teachers, university academics, student teachers, Education Ministry officials, parliamentarians, researchers campuses, unions, universities and NGOs.

 

This is the version that was printed in Spanish. We hope to have an English translation in the near future.
