Paulo Freire on problem-posing education

“In problem-posing education, people develop their power to perceive critically the way they exist in the world with which and in which they find themselves; they come to see the world not as a static reality, but as a reality in process, in transformation.”

Paulo Freire’s “Pedagogy of the Oppressed” is foundational to many of the pedagogical approaches utilized in peace education. This quote introduces the concept of “problem-posing education” as foundational to critical pedagogy.
