We congratulate the recent publication of the members of Consorcio Oaxaca “Experiencias alternativas de educación y estrategias para docentes frente a la violencia escolar” a product of a collective effort. Diverse actors contributed, including SURCO, who shared lived experiences from el Centro de Estudios Universitarios; a university project promoted and maintained by the community of Santa Maria Yaviche.
“Those of us who subscribe to this material are convinced that there is a great potential in children and adolescents to transform the situations of violence that currently exist. Not because we think that they are the future, but because we know that they are the present…In they spaces that they inhabit, particularly in school, they already face different types of violence that are a reflection of who live in their own homes, neighborhoods, cities, or communities. Understanding and dealing with these forms of violence is essential in order to more respectfully and longingly accompany the children and youth with whom we work” – Concorcio Oaxaca
We invite you to download and read the following reflections in order to nourish the educational work because we believe that the reflections and collective constructions help build knowledge. We also ask that you share with those that you know so that they can be read by more people.
