On the debut episode of Educate 8:46, Miami University Professor Dr. Denise Taliaferro Baszile explains why education is ultimately an act of self-determination that can lead us all to a more equitable society.
The purpose of education, in a revolutionary sense, she says, is to seek to know better. So that we might be better. So that we might do better. So that we might collectively breathe forth a new, more just world.
