Dear Members of Teaching in Albq,

Anyone heard of or like Paolo Freire? Here is an interesting article.
Lessons to Be Learned From Paulo Freire as Education Is Being Taken..., posted on Tuesday 23 November 2010 by Henry A. Giroux / Truthout website.


20 years ago I remember hearing someone saying that in the future the only way to get a good education would be private schools ...


To those who are in the classroom: have a well-deserved Thanksgiving Break!

From the article: "{Paolo Freire} also recognized the pedagogical force of a corporate and militarized culture that eroded the moral and civic capacities of citizens to think beyond the common sense of official power and the hate mongering of a right-wing media apparatus. Paulo strongly believed that democracy could not last without the formative culture that made it possible."
