Peace Education and Paulo Freire's Method: Towards the Democratisation of Teaching and Learning
Klein, Mike
Convergence, v40 n1-2 p187-205 2007
This article explores the application of Paulo Freire's methodological concerns in a contemporary, educational, non-revolutionary setting. It is focused on a Peace Educators' Workshop that meets three times annually to explore peace education in secondary schools in the United States. This treatment of Freire was developed for a day-long workshop after peace educators expressed an interest in the meaning of--and participation in--democratic processes in schools. The privileges of military recruiters in public schools emerged as an initial generative theme, and led to further insights about uncovering educational contradictions and constructing codifications as two key steps in a social change process. (Contains 5 notes and 4 figures.)
