The Learning Cooperative delivers affordable tuition with students and tutors from around the world.
We are an educational practice organised by a coalition of anti-capitalist, communist, anarchist and radical leftist education workers and teachers. We stand for a revolutionary pedagogy and for organising with the oppressed in the service of anti-imperialist, anti-fascist and anti-capitalist politics.
Our working practice is in constant transformation in order to develop more democratic and emancipatory working relationships among our members, which includes workers, students, and other stakeholders. All members are involved in our decision making processes and all members earn the same global wage wherever they are.
Our pedagogical practice is oriented around developing truly accessible and sustainable provision of education for and with the working-class and the oppressed in the broadest senses of the terms, attentive to the interrelations between axes of oppression, and transcending national borders. In particular, we aim to be as radically accessible as we can, including by ensuring that any prices are ‘wealth-indexed’ and adapt so that they are affordable to as many people as possible, while ensuring the sustainability of our organisation.
Our practice works in tandem with our efforts to develop a novel theoretical basis for pedagogy today, informed by Marxist, anti-racist, anti-imperialist, anti-colonial, anti-Zionist, queer feminist and radical disability theories, learning from our collective experiences in theoretical application, and honing pedagogy into a better weapon for empowerment and cooperation among the working class.
