Sample text

Therefore, besides acknowledging the significance of interpreting reality, critical pedagogues reinforce the schools’ potential for critique and democratic intervention. A language of critique entails a critical understanding of society as it is, with different layers of meaning and with several forces in interaction. In sum, it involves a deconstructive view of reality and a challenge to fixed interpretative frames. Furthermore, not only does it call for teachers/students to construe their own cultural identities critically and recognise the Others’, it also demands that they question their role in the surrounding community, as citizens of their own country and as citizens of larger social and political communities.

An interdisciplinary approach to culture entails a tendency towards more complex analyses and a problem-posing stance that characterise CP. Both the transgression of disciplinary boundaries and the serious attention paid to everyday matters represent a real challenge to culture teachers’ praxis. It involves changes both in content and in process since the object of learning is part of our everyday experience and the true purpose of the teaching/learning encounter is to have students reflect upon it and obtain greater meaning and knowledge from it.

Thus ethics is taken up as a struggle against inequality and as a discourse for expanding basic human rights. (Giroux, 1992: 74) In relation to ethics, questions of human suffering, dignity and emancipation are worries central to CP. Within this framework, CP is closely connected with multicultural democratic citizenship education. It has to do with individual improvement, social solidarity and public responsibility. This concern for the public and the democratic process leads us to another important feature which is also often associated with critical pedagogies, the political dimension.
