Paulo Freire was a highly respected and influential Brazilian educator whose theories have had a profound effect on the way we view education. Working with peasant populations mainly in the area of literacy, Freire was able to reveal how education has been used by the dominant culture as a means of establishing their world views and values upon subordinate cultural groups. In particular, his seminal book Pedagogy of the Oppressed reveals how not only the overt curriculum, but the mode of its presentation and communication plays a significant role in the oppression of minority groups. His theories link the ongoing process of colonisation with the oppression and struggles of indigenous peoples everywhere, and give hope for a transformative pedagogy of liberation and social justice. Freire died in 1997.


This PDF outlines the main principles of Freire's educational philosophies, and is adapted from my 1997 PhD Thesis.
