- Susan L. GroenkeAffiliated withDepartment of Theory and Practice in Teacher Education, University of Tennessee Email author
When people hear or see the term “critical pedagogy,” they might think of Paulo Freire, whose work with Brazilian peasants in the 1970s led him to see education as inseparable from individual empowerment and social change (1970/2000). Joe Kincheloe (2008) suggests anyone working in critical pedagogy today must reference Freire’s work; Peter McLaren, another prominent figure in critical pedagogy, has called Freire the “inaugural philosopher of critical pedagogy” (2000, p. 1).
