” (Freire 261) Articulating that the only way to develop this critical consciousness is the engagement of argument and questioning in classrooms to take the ideas presented by the teacher, and justify them by developing a discussion.
According to Freire, it is obvious that today's education needs serious renovating due to its lack of room for originality among the students it oppresses, the only problem overlooked is the reality behind the ability for such a massive change in what can be considered a big part of a country's culture.
