"While the book is can seem somewhat radical in the ..." - by Amazon Customer
While the book is can seem somewhat radical in the first chapter, the message does become clear by the second. I can definitely see how Freire was arrested - they only read the first pages. This book did really open my eyes to the institutionally installed glass ceiling.

"A beautiful work!" - by H (Boston, MA)
(If you have not read Freire's classic 1970 text, Pedagogy of the Oppressed, stop reading this review and go check it out. It is Freire's seminal masterpiece in which he envisions what he called a "liberatory" education--a brilliant theory of education for social change.)

If you have read "Pedagogy of the Oppressed", then you *must* read this! In this wonderful work, Freire tells the story of how the first book came to be written and the journeys that the book has taken him on since. Throughout the tale, he also responds to a lot of the major criticism of the first book in a charitable and brilliant manner. The work's title also comes from a frequent motif in the book, the importance of maintaining hope in our often seemingly hopeless world--an argument that Freire makes beautifully.

Overall, Freire's thoughtful and humble prose makes for a great read. There are great stories and ... full review

"like curriculum design and how to teach creativity and collaboration" - by Juliette Cezzar (New York, NY USA)
As an educator, it's insanely refreshing to read about design education from someone who actually knows what she's talking about. Almost all of what is written about design education is for the purpose of selling a product or a school, and often reflects on a single, individual experience. Meredith Davis has reviewed dozens of schools and dossiers, and it really shows.

I was initially attracted to the book because it begins with a short history of design education, which is something I've been curious about (and grappling with) for a few years now. It then moves on to some of the bigger issues, like curriculum design and how to teach creativity and collaboration, and ends with some reflection on teaching design in K-12. None of it is abstract: I found myself nodding along with most of the book, slightly annoyed that more than a decade of what I had learned by ... full review

"Amazing book!" - by Michelle (URBANA, IL, US)
This is one of my favorite books! Dr. Darder applies the work and theories of Paulo Freire to current issues in schools and communities. I read this book as a graduate student and now include it in the undergraduate courses I teach on community psychology. It is a great book to use to bring awareness to the oppresive structures that continue to marginalize low-income individuals in the schools and in society as a whole. Absolutely LOVE this book!

"Navigating the World of a New Teacher" - by E. Farwell
Jeff Halstead did a great job of balancing the importance of learning for both students and teachers. I think a lot of people forget that teachers are still learning everyday, too. This book provides a lot of valuable information and tools for those teachers who realize that sometimes they are going to have to re-evaluate their teaching styles and techniques because they're not reaching that one kid or their lesson plan didn't go as smoothly as they had hoped. The many examples that he provides helped to remind me, as a future teacher, that I can learn so much from my colleagues. There are teachers out there other than myself or the experts that have great ideas. I also really appreciated the amount of time he dedicates to building relationships with students and individualization, because for me those are two very important aspects of being a great teacher. The only ... full review

"While many teachers find Freire's book useful for helping them reflect on the oppressive structures of ..." - by Eddie
I am teacher educator at a public university in Los Angeles. As part of my work, I find myself responsible for facilitating discussions about Pedagogy of the Oppressed with novice teachers. While many teachers find Freire's book useful for helping them reflect on the oppressive structures of schools and transform their classrooms, they often find his ideas complex and overwhelming. In preparation for this work, I have consulted several books that have been useful in defining Freire’s themes and make connections teachers' classroom contexts. Antonia Darder's student guide however is significantly better than all the sources I have consulted. The book is aimed at a general reader who is interested in the topic of education and schools but does not have background in the work of Freire and the extensive literature referenced in Pedagogy of the Oppressed. The initial chapter on the biography of his ... full review

"Darder Leads Freire Resurgence" - by Brian M. McKenna (East Lansing, MI)
Freire is mounting a huge cultural comeback in this Dark, rudderless Age and Antonia Darder is helping to lead the resurgence. This wonderful book takes us to new vistas in the struggle. It is written in powerful prose that will jettison you out of your chair and into the action -- true to the man who served as her mentor, Paulo Freire. Like her previous works, like "Culture and Power in the Classroom," "Dissident Voice" and "the Critical Pedagogy Reader" this latest book, "Freire and Education," shakes us up, pulls us out and propels us forward. Darder is a member of the powerful critical pedagogy school (along with top scholar/activists like Giroux, Aronowitz, Steinberg, McLaren, Macedo, Nocella, Fine, Kahn, to name a few) who together have helped propel Freire (with his wisdom and brilliance, mistakes and incompleteness -- like us all!) into millions of homes across the world. We ... full review

"Well-written Study of the Roots of Freire's Thought" - by Martin E. Schmidt
Having read some interpretations of critical theory and pedagogy for my doctoral work in social conscience education, I find this book to be very readable and even of interest to the general, if philosophically-inclined, reader. While certainly sophisticated in its goal of understanding the philosophical roots of Freirian thought, the aim in imitation of Freire himself is to speak to teachers and other common folk opposed to primarily speaking to fellow academics. Dale and Hyslop-Margison deserve much praise for bringing rarified concepts to earth.
