Pedagogy of the Cityby Paulo Freire, D. Macedo (Translator)
In Pedagogy of the City
In the late 1980s, after an extended period of exile from his native Brazil, educator and social theorist Paulo Freire returned to Sao Paulo and assumed leadership of the bureau of education in that city. Pedagogy of the City consists of a series of interviews with the author of the ground-breaking and best-selling Pedagogy of the Oppressed.
In Pedagogy of the City we see how Freire was able to put his ideas on the relationship between teacher and student into practice. The book discusses the implementation of an education based on justice and fairness in a country known for repression, and in a city with some of the poorest people in the world.
But Pedagogy of the City is more than a history of ideas in action. It offers a plan of action for the transformation of urban schooling everywhere: where educational systems represent and respect the student, and where students and their life experiences are a curriculum in interaction with teachers who help. More than twenty years after the landmark publication of Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Pedagogy of the City stimulates anew the thinking of teachers and all concerned citizens.
