Sarah Knopp, a Los Angeles teacher and member of the International Socialist Organization organized a panel at Democratic Socialists of Americas Left Forum 2011 in New York in March, “Capitalism and Education: A Marxist discourse on what we’re fighting against and what we’re fighting for”, which discussed how best to indoctrinate children in the classroom.
