As Indigenous communities around the world work to ensure the survival of their languages, it is becoming clear that the best language planning approaches involve learning opportunities for families and individuals of all ages.

Learning to Live (Not Walking in Line)

Theodore Christou
The history of research and scholarship in education is a record of our efforts to make sense of the world. How ought we to live? What should we learn, embrace, and resist? From antiquity to anarchism, or, from Aristotle to Pink Floyd, we have known that we should never confuse schooling with education. Schools, whether they are traditional, progressive, colonial, or transgressive, have all been instruments of oppression as well as resistance.
