Editorial Reviews

Review

“While Freire often discussed education theories in regard to Third World countries, his latest text transcends all cultures and speaks to all who educate. For those who share Freire’s vision of a world-wide democratic school, I highly recommend Teachers as Cultural Workers. “
Vanguard

“The English translation of Freire’s latest book should become the instant success the original Portuguese edition was …Upper-division undergraduates through professional will find it worth [their] time and effort. “

This book was recommended reading for the professional leadership team of a summer program for highly able, but economically disadvantaged youth. For those of us working in the field of education for several years, it is a wonderful reminder of why we chose this profession.
It is worthwhile reading -- especially for those who are getting 'tired'.

I don't think anyone, experienced teacher or teacher-in-training should be allowed to set foot in the classroom without reading this book. I've spent over 30 years teaching across the curriculum in the social sciences, language arts and the humanities both on-line and on-ground. I also hold on EdD in Educational Psychology. That's the degree that supposedly qualifies one to teach others how to teach or, at very least, teach others what psychology has to say about what "best practices" actually are given what we know about how people learn and the type of classroom environments, virtual and otherwise, that most effectively encourage real learning that changes minds and lives. If I had to forget everything I know about educating except for what was contained in one book and got to choose which book, this would be my choice.

This is a great read and it helps to put the subject of teachers, education, and societal responsibility back to a well thought and respected realm. Too bad if only teachers read it. The masses need to understand this too..

Maybe 3 1/2 stars would be more accurate. Freire instills the importance and primacy of love in learning. At times the read segues into platitudes and distractions. For that reason 3 1/2 stars.
