Some Reflections on Pedagogy: In the Light of Paulo Freire and Rabindranath Tagore

Sreetama Misra

Abstract :

The article features the concerns of the modern trend of education which targets children and instrumentally uses them at achieving millennium strategies and aims at making children only an ‘exam-machine’. In result, it creates dehumanization of a child’s self, where a child perceives education not as a guiding path for life, but as a fearful factor. Here, an analysis has been drawn taking into considerations the two views of the prominent educationists of twentieth century - Paulo Freire and Rabindranath Tagore, whose experimental ideas on reshaping and remodeling educational patters and structures can help in truly reshaping human society and save the civilization from misery.
