Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed

“Many of Freire’s writings are available in English. The most well known of these, Pedagogy of the Oppressed (1972) has been very influential but new readers of Freire may find The Politics of Education (1985) a more accessible text. Key concepts associated with Freire include the contrast between “banking” education (in which facts are deposited into the minds of passive students) and problem-posing education; the notion of conscientization (which is much more than simply awareness-raising); and the idea of the “culture of silence”, in which people are unable to reflect critically upon their world – they become fatalistic and dominated.”Freire Institute
