The Filipinization of Critical Pedagogy: Widening the Scope of Critical Educational Theory
Viola, Michael
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v7 n1 p1-28 Jun 2009
The internationalist frame of critical pedagogy has drawn primarily from the standpoint of Latin American struggle. Unfortunately, the policies of military repression, forced disappearances, and widespread impoverishment in Latin America has been recreated in the present tense--Philippine-style. In my paper, I provide a brief overview of the various developments within critical educational theory rooted in the Marxist tradition. I then draw from Filipino cultural theorist, E. San Juan Jr. to "filipinize" critical pedagogy. I maintain that the "filipinization" of critical pedagogy provides educators with an important standpoint to counter the shallow policies of neoliberal multiculturalism in the United States and the unbridled racism that haunt people of color throughout the world.
