All children have a right to a decent education. This belief is paramount to the Algebra Project - an education organisation founded by celebrated activist Bob Moses aimed at delivering maths literacy to youth of colour - whose aims and practices are outlined in this book. Based on his work with this organisation, author Jay Gillen outlines the tools needed to build social, cognitive and political power in educational settings. He outlines a youth-based educational theory and discusses racial equality issues posed by the de facto segregation of many UK schools.
Gillen argues that this is a proactive political, economic, and educational structure that builds relationships among and between students and their communities.

How community-centered, peer-to-peer, youth knowledge exchanges are evolving into a strong economic and political foundation on which to build radical public education. Following in the rich traditions in African American cooperative economic and educational thought, teacher-organizer Jay Gillen describes the Baltimore Algebra Project (BAP) as a youth-run cooperative enterprise in which young people direct their peers' and their own learning for a wage. BAP and similar enterprises are creating an educational network of empowered, employed students. Gillen argues that this is a proactive political, economic, and educational structure that builds relationships among and between students and their communities. It's a structure that meets communal needs--material and social, economic and political--both now and in the future. Through the story of the Baltimore Algebra Project, readers will learn why youth employment is a priority, how to develop democratic norms and cultures, how to foster positive community roles for 20-30 year-olds, and how to implement educational accountability from below.

The fate of teachers in areas of war is left to themselves; the problems they encounter in their professional activities are not easily noticed by the public. Consequently they become ineffective. As professionals, teachers in most cases remain committed to their profession and continue teaching in spite of the fighting. However, apart from poor living conditions such as accommodation and other public services noticeable to the public, it is hard for people to notice the problems pertinent to their professional activities. How do they manage lesson preparation and getting teaching facilities? How do they conduct classroom teaching, supervision, and learning assessment/evaluation normally? This book is about Northern Uganda insurgency on the effectiveness of secondary school teachers' teaching and supervision. It is targeting Northern Uganda, Gulu District and Gulu Municipality in particular, an area that has seen war for more than twenty years. The book has a genuine problem to present to the public.

In at least one area the U.S. has consciously attempted not to overmilitarize or over-Americanize the war in Vietnam, but rather to cope with its rural revolutionary and largely political dimension. This attempt is known as pacification. The efforts have been designed more or less to serve two central aims: sustained protection of the rural population from the insurgents, which also helps to deprive the insurgency of its rural popular base and generating rural support for the Saigon regime via programs meeting rural needs and cementing the rural areas politically and administratively to the center. A secondary purpose has been to help neutralize the active insurgent forces and apparatus in the countryside. In essence it is a civil as well as a military process. (Author).

Pakistan aided and inspired militancy had reached full blown proportions in the valley in the beginning of 1990. Serious efforts were being made by Pakistan to enlarge the area of disturbances and the arc of militancy, into the border areas. The book chronicles how this difficult objective was achieved. With over 200 kms. long Line of Control (LoC), the area represents an important flank in our defence. The book is about successful tackling of militancy, restoring peace, winning the confidence of the local population and establishing efficacy of the civil administration. The book also focuses on the work done by the civil administration in co-ordination with the security forces, with the people's involvement despite the strenuous efforts of Pakistan's ISI and its agents to create disturbances.

Author: Leo Casey
In The Teacher Insurgency, Leo Casey addresses how the unexpected wave of recent teacher strikes has had a dramatic impact on American public education, teacher unions, and the larger labor movement. Casey explains how this uprising was not only born out of opposition to government policies that underfunded public schools and deprofessionalized teaching, but was also rooted in deep-seated changes in the economic climate, social movements, and, most importantly, educational politics. With an eye to maintaining the momentum of the insurgency, the author examines four key strategic questions that have arisen from the strikes: the relationship of mobilization to organizing; the relationship between protests and direct action; the conditions under which teacher strikes are most likely to be successful; and the importance of "bargaining for the common good." More broadly, Casey examines how to organize teachers for collective action, focusing on four discourses of teaching: teaching as nurturance; as professionalism; as labor and craft; and as a vocation of democratic intellectual work.

Popular education tools can be utilized to address complex urban regulations and unequal power relationships within urban planning. Guided by Friedman's argument that planning needs to have utopian thinking (2000), this research proposes what planning ought to be, rather than only focusing on what is. Using street vendor education as a catalyst for popular education models related to planning regulations, this thesis centers on the Vendor Power Guide in New York City as a main case study, and explores the components of the guide that made it such a successful tool for transforming community awareness around unfair vending regulations and supporting vendor interactions with law enforcement. Ultimately, this project identifies the ways in which urban planners should use popular education within their work to encourage citizen power and democracy.

"Since January 2004, a Malay-Muslim-based insurgency has engulfed the three southernmost provinces in Thailand. More than 4,500 people have been killed and over 9,000 wounded, making it the most lethal conflict in Southeast Asia. Now in its 8th year, the insurgency has settled into a low-level stalemate. Violence is down significantly from its mid-2007 peak, but it has been steadily climbing since 2008. On average, 32 people are being killed and 58 wounded every month. Most casualties are from drive-by shootings, but there are also about 12 improvised explosive device (IED) attacks a month. The insurgency is now characterized by less indiscriminate violence and more retaliatory attacks. Insurgents continue to target security forces, government officials, and Muslim moderates who seek accommodation with the Thai state as part of efforts to make the region ungovernable by limiting provision of social services and driving Buddhists from the south. The overall level of violence may be influenced more by insurgent calculations about the optimum amount of violence needed to advance their political goals than by improved capabilities of the security forces. Despite better coordination, Thai counterinsurgency operations are still hampered by bureaucratic infighting and a lack of professionalism. Human rights abuses by security services with blanket immunity under the Emergency Decree continue to instill mistrust among the local population. Moreover, as long as violence is contained in the deep south, the insurgency will remain a low priority for the new Thai government, which is focused on national political disputes and is reluctant to take on the military by pursuing more conciliatory policies toward the south. Indeed, even under the 30-month tenure of the Democrat Party with an electoral base in the south, the insurgency was a very low priority and its few policy initiatives were insufficient to quell the violence. The new Pheu Thai government under Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, the younger sister of Thaksin Shinawatra, who was ousted in a September 2006 coup, will have its hands tied in the south. Its election victory and focus on national reconciliation have already engendered mistrust of the Thai military. The new government will be reluctant to criticize the military's handling of the insurgency, take on the culture of impunity, or push for any form of political autonomy. This will make any devolution of political authority unlikely, limiting chances for a negotiated solution. As a result, low level violence is likely to continue indefinitely. The most important immediate U.S. objective in Thailand is political stability at the national level and deepening bilateral economic ties. Absent a cohesive Thai government with the political will to overcome military resistance to policies that might address underlying causes of the insurgency, U.S. pressure to do more is likely to be ineffective or even counterproductive. Accordingly, the United States should maintain quiet diplomatic pressure on the government to broaden its counterinsurgency efforts and offer any requested intelligence and law enforcement assistance, while being cognizant of Thai sensitivity over its sovereignty."--P. 1-2.

Popular education played a vital role in the twelve-year guerrilla war against the Salvadoran government. Fighting to Learn is a study of its pedagogy and politics. Hammond interviewed more than 100 Salvadoran students and teachers. He recounts their experiences in their own words, vividly conveying how they coped with the hardships of war and organized civilian communities politically to support a guerrilla insurgency. Fighting to Learn tells how poorly educated peasants overcame their sense of inferiority to discover that they could teach each other and work together in a common struggle. It offers both a detailed account of the practice of popular education and a broad theoretical discussion of the relationship between education, community organizing, and the political process.
