Teachable Moment

It may not be the education they were expecting to get, but Activism and Social Change students at New College of California are indeed getting an education this summer—as are faculty and students from other academic programs on the verge of collapse. Whether or not the school survives the public turmoil from the financial and academic frauds perpetrated for decades by the board of trustees, the young people enrolled there in 2007 will always remember the lessons learned in the political struggle to bring down the thoroughly disgraced autocracy of longtime trustee and former president Peter Gabel. With luck, these young people will carry these vital lessons with them as they seek a more just, sacred, and sustainable world elsewhere.
