Treść głównego artykułu


This paper is an attempt to formulate theoretically what in practice I experienced as “parallaxes” in education. This practical experience stems from the ethnographic research I conducted during the past few years in places of urban poverty, focusing on the everyday educational realities of ghetto schools. In the shadows – beyond the margins – of the society educational issues appear in a radically different, refracted light. This refraction is capable of illuminating parallaxes education which hold us captive, and thus it is helpful for thinking differently about education. Through playing with four different parallaxes in education, my intention is to confront the readers of this paper with impossibilities and cracks in education similar to those I was confronted with in ghetto schools.
