Our Education:

All members accepted into the American Party of Labor are enrolled in Marxism 101, our introductory class covering basic Marxist theory, through to the development of international anti-revisionism, and finishing by applying these skills to analyzing contemporary events. Further classes that delve more deeply into anti-revisionism, the national question, etc., are offered but optional. 

The APL also provides yearly funding to send members abroad, to learn through direct experience from member parties in the International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organizations (ICMLPO).
