Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Paperback

Pedagogy of the Oppressed Paperback


This text argues that the ignorance and lethargy of the poor are the direct result of the whole economic, social and political domination.

The book suggests that in some countries the oppressors use the system to maintain a "culture of silence".

Through the right kind of education, the book suggests, avoiding authoritarian teacher-pupil models and based on the actual experiences of students and on continual shared investigation, every human being, no matter how impoverished or illiterate, can develop a new awareness of self, and the right to be heard.
