I've been asked to read Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paulo Friere; I know very little about the subject of critical pedagogy. Which other texts should be read alongside it? Someone has suggested Fanon's Wretched of the Earth.
Fanon is a good suggestion, and his Black Skins, White Masks is also relevant to the topic. You might also try Emile Durkheim and Ivan Illich (Deschooling Society).
For a less theoretical, more contemporary, more practical examination of the same issues, I suggest Kozol (Savage Inequities) or Gatto (Dumbing Us Down).
