Publisher's Summary

Famous for his advocacy of "critical pedagogy", Paulo Freire was Latin America's foremost educationalist, a thinker and writer whose work and ideas continue to exert enormous influence in education throughout the world today. Education for Critical Consciousness is the main statement of Freire's revolutionary method of education. It takes the life situation of the learner as its starting point and the raising of consciousness and the overcoming of obstacles as its goals. For Freire, man's striving for his own humanity requires the changing of structures that dehumanize both the oppressor and the oppressed.

A must for teachers

Learn to transform people, not just transact students. It’s short and pointed, too many awesome quotes to remember. Certainly a re-read every few years.

Illuminating and Inspiring

As a young student of agriculture and development theory this was a spectacular learning moment for me and I look forward to incorporating these methods and ideas into my work.
