School Schmool is back! – Starting Sept 2nd 

SCHOOL SCHMOOL 2011/2012:
activist day planner & radical guide

SCHOOL SCHMOOL is the name of the activist day planner for students at McGill, Concordia and the wider Montreal community. SCHOOL SCHMOOL includes engaging articles, resources and practical tools for students and non-students alike to participate in social and environmental justice activism, as well as a useful day planner to organize busy academic and activist schedules. SCHOOL SCHMOOL is a joint project of the Quebec Public Interest Research Groups (QPIRG) at McGill and Concordia.

This year’s SCHOOL SCHMOOL, which is free of all corporate advertising, includes four main sections:

* i) THE RESOURCES: including “Cheap Eats”; “Health Care Resources”; “Accessible Spaces”; “Taking Care of Your Body”; “Map of Montreal Neighbourhoods”; and much more!
* ii) THE ISSUES: including: “Access to Education”; Alternative Art & Culture”; “Childcare & Parenting”; “Ecological Justice”; “Gender & Feminism”; “Independent Media”; “Indigenous Sovereignty”; “Radical Tech Support”; and much more!”
* iii) THE GROUPS: A listing and description, by theme, of 100 Montreal-area groups and projects, involved in diverse issues and campaigns.
* iv) THE AGENDA: A day planner (September 2011-September 2012) to help organize your life!
