This PDF is by J Krishnamurti on the theory of Education. First written in 1953 - that's more than 60 years ago- the text still resonates with profound critical insights into the sham of public education. Although not couched in the Marxist rhetoric of later critical education theorists this text cuts to the heart of what is wrong with our educational system and with theories of education that revolve around "training", "getting an education", "teaching", and Freire's denigrated "Banking Model". Reading it again after more than 40 years, it still seems fresh and powerful. I recommend it very highly.
