“Pedagogy of the Oppressed meets the single criterion of a 'classic': it has outlived his own time and its author's. For any teacher who links education to social change, this is required reading. Freire remains the most important writer on popular education and surely the virtual founder of the perspective known as Critical Pedagogy.” – Stanley Aronowitz, CUNY Graduate Center and City University of New York, USA
“An inspiring and inspired document arising out of concrete experience with peasants, urban laborers, and middle class converts to freedom.... This book will prompt the reader to reconsider his or her situation in an oppressive society.” – Christian Century
“[Paulo Freire] radiates the kind of immediateness that only a philosopher engulfed by terrible reality can project.” –America
“This is truly revolutionary pedagogy.” – Ivan Illich
“Wherever education is explicitly involved in struggles for equity and justice, Freire's ideas and his books, especially Pedagogy of the Oppressed, will live on.” –Herbert Kohl, Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence and Social Justice, University of San Francisco, USA, The Nation
“Brilliant methodology of a highly charged and politically provocative character.” –Jonathan Kozol
