David Gabbard


A first-generation college student, David Gabbard completed his doctorate in educational foundations at the University of Cincinnati after serving four years in the U.S. Army. After spending more than 25 years critiquing compulsory schools and contemporary school reform measures, Gabbard is currently inspired by Slavoj Žižek's call for a Positive Universal Project, which he views as an alternative vision of what our species ought to be doing – in place of compulsory schooling – with its capacities for collective learning.
