Pedagogy vs. Education

Pedagogy vs. Education

Blog 2


After reading Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Chapter 2 talks about its “banking model”. Which is the scope action allowed to the students extends only as far as receiving, filing, and storing the deposits. My experience with the “banking model” of education, I have had several educators who have made deposits on their teachings. I can only remember to intake as much information. Educators expect us, the students to repeat the material that was taught to us. But the educators make sure the information is transparent for us to understand it.

Freire talks about power intersecting with education. Education is thus constantly remade in the praxis. In order to be, it must become. Freire’s reading states an example of problem-posing education. Affirming men and women as beings in the process of becoming as unfinished, uncompleted beings and unfinished in reality. From my own experience to Freire, education has always been made a mode of memorization. In order for us, the people to be something, we must become something.

The Pedagogy attempts to stands for what a person gains and loses. The people gain being more human but lose its power of fighting attempting to the oppressed.
