Education and politics
Only the solidarity in action between education and politics can provide the conditions for all individuals to become capable of understanding, imagining, and evaluating the world in which they live.
According to Fondazione Reggio Children, education is understood as a place of encounter, interaction and connections among the citizens of a community, and therefore a political place par excellence.
To this effect, pedagogical practice takes on a precise social and political connotation and plays a transformative and regenerative role for the whole community.
The projects promoted by Fondazione aim to support the idea of education as a public fact, which gathers around itself the co-responsibility of institutions, civil society and individuals, in a dimension of open debate, exchange and social management, as it happens in the educational experience of Reggio Emilia.
