Answer by  CarolynOsborne (2804)

Paulo Friere wrote Pedagogy of the Oppressed, originally in Portuguese. It was eventually translated into English. Friere was interested in how the process of education can either be liberational to students or it can just replicate the same injustices. His metaphor for the education that replicates is "banking" pedagogy where teachers make knowledge deposits in the minds of students.
