Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed Continuum, 2000





By illegally occupying huge estates, Brazil's Landless Workers Movement, or MST, has won title to millions of acres of land. The MST has also worked to transform Brazil's schools, in ways that support the movement's socialist goals. Activists there have drawn inspiration from the ideas of Paulo Freire and of several Soviet-era educational theorists. UC Berkeley doctoral student Rebecca Tarlau explains.
