A Critical Humanist Curriculum
Magill, Kevin; Rodriguez, Arturo
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v12 n3 p205-227 Dec 2014-Jan 2015
This essay is a critical humanist discussion of curriculum; a departure from the technicist view of education [education meant to support a global capitalist economy] and an analysis of curriculum considering critical humanism, political economy and critical race theory among other modes of critical analysis and inquiry. Our discussion supports a revolutionary curriculum: the turn from a static coercive system of domination where the everyday lives of students are controlled to a dynamic liberatory education where education supports a student's imaginary (Pinar), creativity and their everyday practice of freedom (Freire, Greene, Hooks).
