The Banking Concept of Education
Details: The Banking Concept of Education
Most teachers have read Paulo Freire at length. His theories stand out in most teacher education programs. The layers of his theory and the beauty of his writing allow teachers to embrace the complexity of the act of educating the people. He believes that education must be a humanizing liberation and empowerment of the people to act authentically by their own volition.
In this chapter, Paulo Freire juxtaposes the bank clerk educator with the libertarian humanist educator. He describes a bank clerk’s teaching approach that suffers narration sickness and oppresses a pacified population in order to preserve elite domination. He dichotomizes the bank clerk educator with a humanizing style that involves a partnership between student and teacher wherein teachers and students play both roles as learners and teachers together. The teacher encourages critical thought that empowers the population to study with the world and remake the world in a continuing process.
