Books are windows and mirrors,” said early childhood education advocate Sara Rizik-Baer, paraphrasing the critic and scholar Rudine Sims Bishop. “They’re mirrors allowing children to see themselves represented, as well as windows into other people’s lives.”Inno got his start as a student activist at UC Davis where he discovered his skills as a designer and photographer were effective contributions to organizing. After graduation he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where he worked as a freelance designer for a range of activist organizations and campaigns until he joined Inkworks Press Collective in 1995. It was during his time at Inkworks that he started developing the Graphic Design for Social Change principles that have guided his work ever since. In 2002 he launched Design Action Collective. Modeled after Inkworks, Design Action was to be a worker-owned collective union design and strategic communications firm dedicated to serving the Movement for Social Change. The following year, Inno proposed what was to become Designs on Democracy: Communication for Liberation—a national convening of design and communications activists aiming to share strategies and build community.

en het maakt me niet uit dat June nog maar 5 weken oud is en hier inhoudelijk de facto niets van kan hebben meegekregen) A happy and well educated child is the optimum goal for early education.That such an aim is conspicuous by its absence and remains differentially elusive should not deter us from the struggle to achieve it as best we can.In the long run, happiness comes with work, integrity, self-respect, and mental discipline.These are qualities that the institutional monolith cannot foster.
