Education Page For Equality, Justice, Freedom, and Retribution
HIS 141 / MAS 141 Syllabus


I am an emeritis professor of Social Studies in the College of Education at San Diego State University. I believe the purpose of education is to build thoughtful action for social justice, that is, equality and democracy. I helped to found the Rouge Forum, K-12 and university school workers, parents, community people, and students, engaged in fighting for a democratic and egalitarian society. You are welcome to join us.

        Life travels upward in spirals.
        Those who take pains to search the shadows
         of the past below us, then, can better judge the
         tiny arc up which they climb,
        more surely guess the dim
         curves of the future above them.
