A path to educational justice for all students - one that encourages teachers, parents, and their communities to adopt the rebellious spirit and bold and creative methods of abolitionists Educator Bettina Love argues that the U.S educational system is maintained by and profits from the suffering of children of color. Reformers offer survival tactics in the forms of test-taking skills, acronyms, grit labs, and character education which she calls the Education Survival Complex. To dismantle the educational survival complex and to achieve educational freedom--not reform--educators, parents, and community leaders must approach education through the imagination, determination, boldness and urgency of an abolitionist. Drawing on her experiences as a student and teacher, Love highlights young community leaders, artists and activists who are advocating for social change and inclusion. She persuasively argues that educators must teach students about racial violence, oppression, and how to make sustainable change in their communities through radical civic initiatives and movements. She concludes by showing how young leaders are expanding our ideas of civic engagement and intersectional justice by using the playbook of abolitionists like Ella Barker, Bayard Rustin, and Fannie Lou Hamer.… (mais)

An Excellent, excellent book! ( )

Esta crítica foi escrita no âmbito dos Primeiros Críticos do LibraryThing.
Love begins by asserting that people of color want to matter. She decries the current educational system, which focuses on helping white kids learn and prosper, but on helping kids of color survive their school years (and often end up in the penal system). She calls for the institution of abolitionist teaching, which focuses instead on creating just, positive outcomes for all kids, and teaching them to dream of and work toward freedom.
The book is somewhat repetitive, but effective in hammering home Love's key message: tweaking the current system is not enough. She presents an interesting and well-thought-out alternative and makes a persuasive case for pursuing it. ( )

We Want to Do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom by Bettina L. Love is a provocative read challenging educators and those in charge of educational systems to do better by African American students and other students of color. Love uses both statistics and personal experiences from her time in the classroom to illustrate the disparities that African American students in the American public school system face. While persuasive, not everyone will be ready for Love's work. She pulls no punches when describing the problems in the educational system and the sources of those problems. This may not be the book for those who have no previous exposure to the systemic issues our country faces. But for those willing to have their eyes opened to something they may not have experienced themselves, this is an informative and challenging read. ( )

Love's book 'We Want to Do More Than Survive' makes a thought-provoking and compelling case fore rethinking the education system in the US. She provides insights from both data and her experience as a student, teacher, and teacher educator into how we are failing students of color. At times it feels a little repetitive, but the repetition serves to drive home the points she is making and, as a white reader, makes it possible to get a little more comfortable with the discomfort of benefiting from systems that privilege white people over dark people over and over again. She also makes concrete suggestions for how one can use white privilege to be a coconspirator and fight the racism that is endemic to our school systems.

Love has written a powerful indictment of our school system and how it harms Black children. The book mixes her personal experiences as a student and teacher with plenty of research to support her call for more supportive schooling that allows Black children to be themselves and become their best selves in an atmosphere of love and freedom.
