What is the
Forum? The Rouge Forum is a group of
educators, community organizers, students, and parents seeking a
society. We are concerned about questions like these: How can we teach
racism, national chauvinism, and sexism in an increasingly
undemocratic society? How can we gain enough real power to keep our
still teach and learn? Whose interests shall serve in a society that is
more unequal? We are both research and action oriented.
