Disposable Youth in Dark Times

Posted on Mar 13, 2013

Neoliberal capitalism values young people only as commodities, social philosopher Henry Giroux says, and teachers, whose work is to encourage the growth of minds, have some of the best opportunities to defend them.

Giroux, who holds the Global TV Network Chair in English and Cultural Studies at Canada’s McMaster University, reprised this, his primary theme, in a free public talk at his school in early March. His persistent effort to show how the economy crushes, deforms and degrades young people makes him one of their greatest contemporary advocates and allies.
