A Critical Exploration of Colombian Teacher Education from Freire's "Directivity" Perspective
Rubiano, Clara Inés
Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, v39 n5 p574-589 2013
The paper presents an exploration of Colombian teacher education from Paulo Freire's "directivity" perspective, which involves the political notion of education and the struggle for social justice. It examines certain existing tensions in teacher education, and analyses critically their implications for the teaching profession regarding an alternative pedagogical framework and new approaches for the professional identity-formation toward teaching for social justice. The paper also discusses the challenges for education research in Colombia, a country that both dreams of education as the nation's future and fights against its inherent sense of adversity.
