teaching as a subversive activity


This book is a classic, and as famous as it is, and as old, I wish it were more widely read today. I found a

where the full text is available online. The book has raises some good questions around what education is and could be, which are still very current. The second chapter is particularly worth reading - the medium is the message, of course. Although our education systems have come a long ways since the book was written, and in the direction which the book is advocating, teaching has, ironically, become more complicit than ever. In the end experience is the best teacher. Still a worthwhile read for understanding what education is really all about.
