Life in Schools. An Introduction to Critical Pedagogy in the Foundations of Education
This book describes one individual's reinvention as an educator, from a liberal humanist to an advocate of critical pedogogy. It examines relationships between schooling, the wider social relations that inform it, and historically constructed needs and competencies that students bring to schools, focusing on the social conditions of disaffected students living in public housing units under oppressive circumstances and addressing the needs of inner-city teachers. It uses the concepts of critical pedagogy to analyze the failure of inner-city schools and suggest a vision for changing schooling.
