Addressing Social and Ecological Degradation through Education
It is necessary to go beyond rebellious attitudes to a more radically critical and evolutionary position, which is in fact a position not simply of denouncing injustice but of announcing a new utopia. Transformation of the world implies a dialectic between two actions: denouncing the process of dehumanization and announcing the dream of a new society. (Freire, 1998, p. 74)
I found it imperative that I begin and end this project in a very personal way to communicate that this is not my book; this is myself. This work is imperfect because it is personal and in a sense it is little more than an exhaustively documented glimpse of the current stage in my own continuing development. I want to conclude by discussing the limitations of this work in an open way and in my own voice. Given the limitations and the incompleteness of this document, I reflect on the process I’ve been immersed in and conclude that the process has been valuable, but that I need to put what I’ve learned to work in a practical setting. ← 199 | 200 →
