Call to Broaden Criticism  
I realize[info]voyager640 just started this community but I already believe [info]crit_ped's description and interests are too narrow for long-term survival.  I expect [info]crit_ped to be defunt in the near-term because critical pedagogy is a narrow branch in philosophies of education and pedagogues.  Instead of merely bashing something new I propose a compromise that broadens our interest in critical pedagogy by starting a community of educators interested in philosophy and a general membership interested in alternative pedagogies, such as critical pedagogy.  We could call it phil_of_ed, or we could "buy out" the defunt member called [info]pedagogy; something to encompass this community's narrow interests with broader criticism of education.   My expectation that this community cannot survive for long on LJ is based on observing [info]phil_of_mind and [info]phil_of_science infrequent and unlively discussion despite both being narrow subjects within philosophy yet broader than critical pedagogy.  Could we expect a better chance that a community about philosophies of education and pedagogues will survive versus a community about one kind of pedagogy?

I agree with this comment.

Now I'm wondering if it shouldn't simply be called education.
