Centre Table Education was a baby born in 2019, after years of conversations about teaching that took place first at York University at a table in the centre of Dr. Carl James’ Urban Education course, then in classrooms, coffee shops, on phone calls, restaurants, WhatsApp chats, kitchen tables, subways, living room couches and at least one beach in Jamaica.

We have been talking, thinking, learning and working together since 2001 and this resource portal is our attempt to share our vision of English education with other English teachers. We are passionate about English curriculum and believe it its potential to decolonize minds–as well as contribute to the construction of a society committed to social, racial and economic justice.
