Vol. XVII Number 1
|The people in the Peace Studies Office bring the Kenapocomoco Coalition Newsnotes to you monthly during the academic year.. The purpose is to inform students, faculty, staff, and other interested folks of scheduled events and activities within the department and pass along other information that appears relevant or just somewhat interesting. The contents of the newsletter do not necessarily reflect the thoughts, opinions, and beliefs of everyone in the Peace Studies office or Kenapocomoco Coalition. If you have comments, suggestions, or items for the newsletter, please contact Heidi Gross, the Peace Studies intern, head cook, and editor of the Kenapocomoco Newsnotes. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or call x5343. Thanks.|
Yes I know my enemies! They're the teachers who taught me to fight me! Compromise, conformity, assimilation, submission, ignorance, hypocrisy, brutality, the elite! All of which are American dreams...

Harper's Index from Harpers Magazine (July 2004):
Education as the practice of freedom -- as opposed to education as the practice of domination -- denies that the individual is abstract, isolated, independent, and unattached to the world; it also denies that the world exists as a reality apart from people.
-- Paulo Freire
