    Every time I read Freire I find new understandings!

    The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation is yet another lightning rod from Paulo Freire. Although probably best read around the same time as Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Cultural Action for Freedom, and Education for Critical Consciousness, this will be powerful anytime.  The Adult Literacy Process as Cultural Action for Freedom [Chapter Six]  -- along with the majority of the book -- is a call to arms.

Although probably best read around the same time as Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Cultural Action for Freedom, and Education for Critical Consciousness, this will be powerful anytime.  The Adult Literacy Process as Cultural Action for Freedom [Chapter Six]  -- along with the majority of the book -- is a call to arms. And Freire's critique of the church and its lack of revolutionary character (Christ was no conservative) is a must read of anyone who practices any sort of religion.   Also, the two sets of Dialogues are gems.

    Freire dengan segala ambisiusme dalam program pembutaan hurufnya yang tidak sekedar menghafalkan huruf namun mengerti dan memahami huruf yang tersusun menjadi sebuah kata generatif akan arti kesadaran kritis hingga penuh benar-benar membukakan pikiran saya akan arti dari pendidikan. Penekanannya untuk membukakan mata masyarakat yang tertindas untuk melawan masyarakat dominan sebagai penindas melalui aksi budaya dan revolusi memberi warna buku ini pada setiap babnya. Guru dan murid ada Freire dengan segala ambisiusme dalam program pembutaan hurufnya yang tidak sekedar menghafalkan huruf namun mengerti dan memahami huruf yang tersusun menjadi sebuah kata generatif akan arti kesadaran kritis hingga penuh benar-benar membukakan pikiran saya akan arti dari pendidikan.

Guru dan murid adalah subyek. Dan dunia adalah obyek.

    I'm realizing that one of my favorite professors sees bad writing as a disease, and in my tutoring, I treat writing as a skill, and sometimes as diseased. Sometimes, when I see writing that is so diseased it's almost dead, I just freeze and don't know how to talk to that writer. I imagine that there is a vast difference between us, and I'm wrong. I can't apply a lot of this book directly to my tutoring practice, because it's about adult literacy in Third World countries.

I can't apply a lot of this book directly to my tutoring practice, because it's about adult literacy in Third World countries. However, the theory should be re-imagined and applied to every educational setting. That's the challenge Freire offers: Examine how you perceive yourself as an educator, and deconstruct your perspective. How does your work function in a cultural/historical/political context? Are you perpetuating the social structure, or are you taking critical action?

    This book is a collection of essays by Freire, and it is brilliant. Each one focuses on power and resistance in education through challenging the status quo with a critical lens. He speaks brilliantly in active learning, the importance of language, etc. The last chapter, a conversation between macedo and Freire, covers so much and is such good reading.

    Benernya baca yang versi Indonesia sih... Education is an act of love. Perlu ekstensi sebenarnya agar "love" nya jadi bernilai tauhid, tidak hanya sekedar membebaskan diri (anti-altruistik). Tapi sungguh pemikiran yang indah.
