Author, activist and educator Jonathan Kozol cuts the ribbon opening the Martin Haberman Library for Social Justice Teaching at the Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association. “Public education is in a struggle for our lives.” Jonathan Kozol.

The Milwaukee Teachers’ Association (MTEA)’s Milwaukee Center for Teaching, Learning and Public Education held the grand opening of the Martin Haberman Library for Social Justice Teaching. Renowned education leader and author ,Jonathan Kozol, was the keynote speaker and he cut the ribbon for the opening for this important event.

The library, located at MTEA’s headquarters, will provide books, materials and collaboration space for the educators of Milwaukee Public Schools.

The library is named in honor of Dr. Martin Haberman, a renowned local educator and UW-Milwaukee professor who passed away in January. The Haberman family donated his entire professional library to the Milwaukee Center for Teaching, Learning and Public Education.

“Dr. Haberman was an innovative, creative thinker in the world of education and a tireless advocate for student centered learning in urban school environments,” noted Bob Peterson, MTEA President.  “He believed in social and economic justice, and his collection of books and materials helps make the library a terrific resource for educators who wish to further his work.”

The Haberman Educational Foundation,Inc., chartered in 1994 on behalf of Dr.Haberman and his longevity in education, contributed gift funds for books, library shelves and important accessories to enhance the space set aside for those who will have access to the site.

Our appreciation from the Haberman Foundation is extended to Jill Eannelli, daughter of Dr. Martin Haberman, along with Linda Post, Bob Peterson, Sid Hatch, Mayra Negron, Jeff Baas, Amy Mizialko , all of whom worked tirelessly to make the opening and continuation of the Martin Haberman Library for Social Justice Teaching a dream that became a reality.
