Lessons in Legitimacy: Colonialism, Capitalism, and the Rise of State Schooling in British Columbia
By Dr. Sean Carleton
Congratulations to Dr. Carleton on the publication of his latest book.
"Lessons in Legitimacy" combines insights from history, Indigenous studies, historical materialism and political economy to present different histories of education for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples together. In the process, this important study reveals how an understanding of the historical uses of schooling can inform contemporary discussions about the role of education in reconciliation and improving Indigenous–settler relations.
