EXCO Twin Cities

Jason worked to transform how our society views education by challenging the dichotomous relationship of student and teacher through the EXCO Twin Cities project. Through this project, the knowledge that everyone brings to the table was valued, and the idea that expertise and legitimacy must be granted to us from expensive, exclusive institutions challenged. Joining in solidarity with similar movements globally, EXCO Twin Cities demonstrates the potential for this form of organizing to unify social justice projects and expand their community. Jason worked to make EXCO a strong voice locally and beyond, and a vivid example of possibility self-organizing education offers students. By granting people truly feel ownership of EXCO and their collective education, the oppressive structures in traditional education have lost some of their force.
