    1. As a student of Paulo Freire, I was mildly aware of Critical Pedagogy as a school of thought with schools of education. However, this book plunged me into the debate within critical pedagogy today. I realized that some of my misunderstanding and misgivings about CP are the subject of much discussion within the movement. Some of those issues include the following:- How importance is the language of CP? With it's neo-Marxist leanings some authors seem to be bent on creating a new language universe [...]

    2. This book, like many of Peter McLaren's and Joe Kincheloe's books, is a must read for those new to Critical Pedagogy. In an era where education is becoming increasingly corporatized, McLaren and Kincheloe's work continue to prove ever more relevant. To take a position, as Freire, would argue, with and for the oppressed is never an easy road, to do so and have a lasting effect on past present and future educators, as argued in Critical Pedagogy: Where Are We Now, is to work with communities to co [...]

    3. Joe Kincheloe and Peter McLaren spearhead an outstanding work in critical pedagogy. I recommend this work to any teachers as well as students of education interested in rescuing public education from the clutches of privatization. Kincheloe and McLaren have compiled one of the most important books in education today.
