VIDEO BLOG: Starting the dialogue about social justice in education

By Jose Lara, a teacher at Santee Education Complex

This is the first in a series of videos that I will be producing bi-monthly. I hope to engage people in a dialogue surrounding social justice in education and community organizing. Although I live and work in one of the most oppressed parts of Los Angeles, every day I am inspired by the resiliency of my community. Once we unite and become organized I know that there is nothing that can stop our demand for justice! This is our struggle. I hope this can begin the dialogue.

Videos are produced with a low-cost hand held digital video camera and incorporate the perspective of other LAUSD teachers, as well as South L.A. students, parents and community activists. Using YouTube, Facebook and Twitter to spread the message, these video blogs will bring to the fore ideas and initiate discussions that the South L.A. community needs to have. To view the video blog steam, please visit Jose Lara’s author page.

    Man this guy Jose Lara need to just stuff it I support AZ wanting to get those Illegals out of here or they should go to the process to be legal. But most of all learn to speak ENGLISH Man All those people that don’t want to support this AZ law tough. Hey almost 60% of people do like this law but hey it is the same as the FED law so big deal you people just want a free hand out or free medical just go back to your country and get help there We are tired of having to pay a high tax to support your illegal buts
