Pedagogy of the CityBook - 1993
"This book is primarily comprised of interviews that took place between the first months of Paulo Freire's assuming leadership of the bureau of education in Sao Paulo, and the beginnings of his second year - including his farewell to the bureau upon his retirement." "The highly provocative observations herein confirm a central imperative, namely, that public education must play a decisive role in the continuing reformation of a democratic society. Though written from the viewpoint of an authority in another culture, the implications of Paulo Freire's dialogues reach all the way to our own inner-city schools." "Pedagogy of the City offers a plan of action for the transformation of schooling: the creation of schools that truly represent and respect the student; the creation of schools where students and their life experiences are a curriculum in interaction with teachers who can truly help them; and more." "Twenty years after the landmark U.S. publication of Pedagogy of the Oppressed, this new Pedagogy of the City will help to stimulate anew the thinking of teachers and all concerned citizens."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
