Our Mission

Our curated resources are

As educators and parents in Philadelphia, we believe it’s a necessity that education should cultivate critical thinkers to engage in the process of participating in the world for the purpose of transforming it. Education is a two way street. The relationship between students and teachers needs to be collaborative and humane. It’s not enough to post a reading or video on google classroom. Education is not a passive act; it is a social interaction built on meaningful relationships between students, teachers and parents.

Education is not a commodity. Schooling and learning are two different things and shouldn’t be conflated as the same. Too often schooling is about teaching students to passively accept our deeply flawed and inequitable society, rather than transform it. Too often schooling is about introducing students of color to the school-to-prison pipeline, rather than encouraging them to tear down the walls of mass incarceration. In contrast, true learning is about providing students with a culturally and politically responsive curriculum.
