Hi Elena,
Great post, and thank you for sharing it. As some one who is passionate about social justice in our schools, I was really impressed by your list. The best part, I thought, was that you identified 'systemic oppression'. Often, we forget that school can be oppressive by their very nature - students are limited in what they can or can't do, what they can wear, where they can sit, when they can talk. Discussing these ideas can be a good starting point for understanding of oppression - with the added bonus that students are far more likely to be able to talk about their own experiences easily!
