An Investigation To Vietnamese Educational System: A View From History And Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy Of The Oppressed

Title variants
Languages of publication
Pedagogy of the Oppressed has been inspiring our educational spirit since the first time of reading it as a preparation for critical pedagogy. The situational contexts within Freire’s work have shared similar understanding and experiences with the authors of this writing. The historical and educational contexts of Vietnam have led educators, teachers, and generations of learners to the in-depth understandings of his work on Pedagogy of the Oppressed. The effects of the elite dominators in educational, cultural, and social scenarios have consistently influenced thoughts of the majority of teachers, educational leaders, and educators in the this context; therefore, the traditional teaching in a different academic term as banking education with consciousness of the oppressed and oppressors has been popular.
