In his essay, “The ‘Banking’ Concept of Education,” Freire employs his academic authority to raise awareness on the issue of ineffective teaching standards, and he explicitly argues his stance for a change. In the selection, Freire presents his readers with two concepts of education: “banking” and “problem-posing.” The “banking” concept of education explains that teachers assume students are passive and objects of the teacher’s command. In this reality, the teacher assumes absolute control within the classroom and determines what material to “teach.” Upon my further reading of Freire’s essay, and regarding the “banking” principle, I have placed quotations around the word “teach” because along with Freire, I believe that the “banking” principle is a great offense to our developing minds and leaders. Because this is my belief, I plan to use his paper as the main source on which I will base my argument and literary analysis.
