Consent is crucial for so many parts of life — so why don't we take it seriously in education?

To me, consent means:
- understanding what you’re committing to
- knowing what the alternatives are
- saying “yes” while retaining the power to say “no”

No matter whether we're talking about consent on an institutional or classroom level, it holds the power to transform education.

ps- I didn't come up with the idea of consensual education; that credit goes to my friend Ethan Mitchell, a fellow staff member of Not Back to School Camp (nbtsc.org).
