Matt Koziol CES 101, Section 3 Journal #1 I was a little confused after reading the piece from Paulo Freire. I have a problem with many of his perspectives of the educational system. The whole thing is written with this underlying assumption that teachers have some sort of hidden agenda trying to oppress people with some cult-like ideas. I don’t believe that I ever felt as though ideas were being were being forced upon me in all of my educational experience. He starts in the second sentence by describing the current relationship as involving, “a narrative subject (the teacher) and patient, listening objects (the students).” He goes on to explain this as, “the banking concept of education, in which the scope of action allowed to the students extends only as far as receiving, filing, and storing the deposits.” What doesn’t make sense to me is that knowledge is learned through both personal experience and by others with more knowledge in a subject sharing that knowledge. I’m not sure how else I would have learned much of what I know now
