    Critical Education Theory

    "Critical Education Theory" is an ongoing series produced by New Discourses and James Lindsay.

    It presents an in-depth examination of the nature and sources of the "takeover" of modern education by post-modern, neo-Marxist "Critical Theory", with a number of episodes focused on the work of Paulo Freire (an immensely influential theorist of "Critical Pedagogy").

    In the table below, the PART field for entries that are concerned with the content and influence of Paulo Freire’s landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation will look like this:

    I will try to keep this thread updated with new episodes as they become available.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 1: Education’s New Marxist Commitments
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 58 (13 December 2021)

    Over the last fifty years, a monumental change in the North American education systems has been taking place. The name for that change is “the Critical Turn in Education,” which is, in brief, how Critical Theory has crept into education and education theory (pedagogy) and slowly perverted it from within. The madness in today’s schools, then, is not some unhappy accident of the last year or even decade but the product of a dedicated march into the schooling institutions by Marxist, neo-Marxist, and Identity Marxist Theorists who have all but completely colonized it. This needs attention. Over the coming weeks and months, James Lindsay will be taking his listeners here on the New Discourses Podcast through the Critical Turn in Education so that they can know how and why these terrible changes have been implemented. In this first episode in this wide-ranging series, Lindsay dives into the new commitments Critical Pedagogy demands of teachers and students in the new Regime. Join James as he reads through a summary by Critical Education Theorist Michael Apple to learn exactly what these are.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 2: How Education Turned Critical
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 61 (03 January 2022)

    Something is rotten in the state of Western education. The name for that rot is “Critical Pedagogy,” which could also be called “Critical Education Theory,” the infusion of Critical Theory into all aspects of education. How did this happen? Rather, how was it allowed to happen? Activists have been tirelessly working for over 50 years to make their way into the American, Canadian, and other Western school systems, and, as you will learn in this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, the second in a growing series on the Critical Turn in Education, they have been successful in that mission for at least the last 30 years. In this episode, second in this series, James Lindsay reads through the book that documents this horrific turn, The Critical Turn in Education, by Marxian education professor Isaac Gottesman, and makes clear exactly how our educational systems were deliberately and strategically turned Marxist over the last half century. Join him to understand exactly what’s going on in our schools and why.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 3: Paulo Freire’s Politics of Education and a New Hope
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 63 (17 January 2022)

    How did Wokeness come about? Here on the New Discourses Podcast, we’ve dedicated hours and hours to uncovering the roles of neo-Marxism (or, Critical Marxism; or, Critical Theory), postmodern Theory, Marxism, Hegelianism, and other dimensions of Leftist thought. The role played by Critical Pedagogy, and in particular the Marxian Theory of Paulo Freire, has not been fully discussed, however. The role played by this line of Marxian thought cannot be ignored, however, because, as James Lindsay puts it in the forthcoming book Race Marxism, Critical Pedagogy is the plow, planter, and fertilizer that enabled Wokeness to grow in the first place. This is evident when we understand Freire’s line of thought on the purpose and approach to education, but what’s less well understood is the aspect of faith and hope (“Critical Hope”) Freire brought back into Marxian Theory. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, join James as he dives into the introduction to Paulo Freire’s 1985 book, The Politics of Education, in order to better understand Freire and his influence. This podcast is the third in the developing Critical Education Theory series on the New Discourses Podcast and the first of many focusing on the figure and thought of Paulo Freire.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 4: Paulo Freire’s Prophetic Vision for Education
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 65 (02 February 2022)

    Perhaps no Marxist has had more influence on the Western world than the Brazilian crackpot educator Paulo Freire, who is most famous for his book The Pedagogy of the Oppressed, which is the third most-cited work in the social sciences and humanities in the history of the world and a mainstay in all education programs today. Understanding Freire and his influence is therefore paramount to understanding how our education system has been poisoned by Marxist Theory over the last forty years. To put it simply, Freire must be understood as a significant prophet in the Marxist religion, and his faith has been integrated thoroughly into all North American education, to the detriment of all. Join James Lindsay in this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, where he continues through the darker, deeper aspect of Freirean Critical Pedagogy, as he reads through the second half of Henry Giroux’s foreword to Freire’s 1985 The Politics of Education, which is an explicitly religious book. This is the fourth episode in Lindsay’s sprawling Critical Education Theory (Critical Pedagogy) series on the New Discourses Podcast.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 5: Critical Education: What Is Culturally Relevant Pedagogy?
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 66 (07 February 2022)

    Fancy buzzwords proliferate around the fight in education, especially now that Critical Race Theory has been exposed so thoroughly (as Race Marxism). Terms like Ethnic Studies, Social-Emotional Learning, and all manner of “culturally” something teaching seem like they have cropped up out of the ground in just the last few months, but they’re actually old. Culturally relevant teaching (CRT) is one of these, pioneered first in 1995 by Marxist and Critical-Race education activist Gloria Ladson-Billings. In that year, Ladson-Billings wrote both “Toward a Critical Race Theory of Education” and “Toward a Theory of Culturally Relevant Pedagogy.” In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay reads through this latter paper, “Toward a Theory of Culturally Relevant Pedagogy,” [PDF file] to expose what this menace to education is (hint: it’s not very clear, but it’s obviously Marxism). Join him to learn about culturally relevant, responsive, and sustaining teaching, cultural competence, and the broader Marxist project of multiculturalism.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 6: Critical Education: Transformative Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 69 (07 March 2022)

    Possibly the most important topic happening in education, at least if you care about the well-being, health, and safety of children and the future of this country, is “Social-Emotional Learning (SEL).” Social-Emotional Learning is the psychologizing of schooling, and, as one might expect, it comes in a variety of forms. The most contemporary and relevant form is the most Marxist form because the Marxist educators have completely hijacked any legitimacy the program ever had and turned it into a Maoist nightmare to ruin your kids so they can achieve their revolution. In this long, detailed episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay helps you understand the most Marxist version of SEL, Transformative SEL, by reading a full academic paper describing it and the (complete lack of) evidence for its implementation. The paper [PDF file] appeared in Educational Psychologist in 2019, bearing the title ” Transformative Social and Emotional Learning (SEL): Toward SEL in Service of Educational Equity and Excellence,” and is by Robert J. Jagers, Deborah Rivas-Drake, and Brittney Williams. If you want to save our schools, you have to understand what Transformative SEL is (and the CASEL model it has colonized), and you can do that by joining James for this informative episode!

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 7: Paulo Freire’s Politics of Education
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 71 (11 April 2022)

    Just as we have learned here on the New Discourses Podcast that we live in Herbert Marcuse’s world today (and that’s why it’s so messed up), we also need to understand that our children all go to Paulo Freire’s schools. Therefore, we have to spend some time getting to know Paulo Freire and his approach to education, now called Critical Pedagogy or Critical Education Theory, and we need to know it deeply. To serve that goal, the New Discourses Podcast has undertaken a long series on Critical Education Theory, filled with several miniseries. Here, it begins a miniseries exploring Paulo Freire’s book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation, published in 1985, in considerable depth, revealing exactly what Freirean education is about. Though the introduction to this book, by Henry Giroux, already counts for two episodes of the New Discourses Podcast in this broader series, in this episode, James Lindsay begins his deep-dive directly into Freire’s work. This book, The Politics of Education, is nothing short of revelatory, not least because it is the book that succeeded in getting Freire to be taken seriously throughout colleges of education throughout North America. [For the other parts of this series that specifically cover Freire’s book, see the table in post #1 of this thread. - OB]

    In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James tackles the first two chapters of this book, giving a broad overview of Freire’s general approach and beliefs about the act of study and two visions for education: one “ingenuous” and the other Critical. In the second of these, we see how Freire redefines “literacy” so that it becomes the site of a new Marxian Theory. Freire’s Marxist and Hegelian roots are clearly exposed in just these first two chapters, as are his generally religious disposition with regard to Marxism. Join James to understand how Freire, through this book and his other work, transformed our education system into Marxist Sunday School, five days a week, bearing in mind that nearly all of our kids go to Paulo Freire’s schools.

    Obviously a person would have to dedicate some time to watch.

    From personal experience in healthcare, I know that the "professionals" pretty much absorb and spew the protocol narrative. So if COVID is contagious and face masks and social distancing and vaccine is what everybody needs, that is what most workers in the field absorb, support, and spew.

    I would imagine that people in the teaching industry pretty much follow the protocol narrative also.

    Only strong fish swim against the rapids. Most that go against the narrative are ostracized.

    Is it better to know what they are doing to harm society or be ignorant and blissful? Is there actually anything we can do? What would you do if you were in Shanghai? What good does it do to have the best freedom and liberty ideology and principles presented from elected representatives that do not gain any support? Does it do any good to have farm animals if you cannot get grain to feed them? Healthcare, Foreign Policy, Green Energy, Regulations, Taxes, Education...... Too much control in the overlords hands. I am merely a pawn with no capability to defeat a machine programmed to defeat me.

    Maybe it would be better for Musk to have purchased Farmland or ??? in the USA instead of Twitter stock. There needs to be a liberty infrastructure in place or we are all doomed.

    Maybe start a new religion that skirts all USA laws and regulations. Members can be left alone to toil in their endeavors.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 8: Paulo Freire: Educating to Proclaim the World
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 72 (18 April 2022)

    This episode of the New Discourses Podcast continues into a second part a long miniseries exploring Paulo Freire’s landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation, and it is embedded in the broader Critical Education Theory series here. In the previous part, James Lindsay presented the ideas of the first two chapters, revealing both how religious Freire is and how Marxist. [For the other parts of this series that specifically cover Freire’s book, see the table in post #1 of this thread. - OB]

    In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James tackles the next two chapters of this book, chapters three and four, wherein it becomes abundantly clear that “Culturally Relevant Teaching” is an Identity Marxist repackaging of Freirean education. His discussion highlights how messianic Freire is and pointing out that, in some sense, Freire’s Critical Pedagogy stands in analogous relationship to the Gospel of John for the Marxist Theology. Freire’s idea is that literacy means political literacy as understood in the Marxist way: formal education is bourgeois and Critical Education is a revolutionary praxis that can transform the oppressive state of the world. Freire’s point, though, is positively religious, in the Johnnine sense in that his goal is to teach the word so the conscious can learn to speak the world. Join James Lindsay to unpack even more of what it means that all of our children now go to Paulo Freire’s Marxist Sunday Schools.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 9: The Social Work of Education
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 73 (25 April 2022)

    This episode of the New Discourses Podcast continues into a third part a long miniseries exploring Paulo Freire’s landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation, and it is embedded in the broader Critical Education Theory series here. In the previous parts, James Lindsay presented the ideas of the first four chapters, revealing both how religious Freire is and how Marxist. [For the other parts of this series that specifically cover Freire’s book, see the table in post #1 of this thread. - OB]

    In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay reads the entirety of chapter 5 of The Politics of Education, which seems out of place at first because it addresses “the role of the social worker in the process of change.” Not only is this chapter also profoundly religious, it reveals two points very clearly that are crucial to understand if one is to understand Critical Pedagogy (thus what’s happening in schools). First, Freire is reproducing basic Marxist Theory with knowledge (as understood by formal education within the existing system) as the special form of bourgeois property. Second, Freire is erasing the distinction between education, which he says must be sociopolitical to be authentic, and social work, paving the way for the Social-Emotional Learning programs of today, especially Transformative SEL. Join James to dig even deeper into what it means that our children all go to Paulo Freire’s schools.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 10: Your Kids Go to Paulo Freire's Marxist Schools
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 74 (02 May 2022)

    Here on the New Discourses Podcast, we are deep into our sprawling series on Critical Education Theory (Critical Pedagogy) and the Identity Marxist corruption of our schools, and at the same time, we’re still being gaslighted about whether or not Critical Race Theory is even present in American schools. In this episode of the podcast, James Lindsay reads through part of an academic paper from 2006 about incorporating Critical Race Theory and Whiteness Studies into literacy education in second-grade classrooms. That’s seven-year-olds. The point is clear: almost all of our kids go to Paulo Freire’s Marxist schools, and Critical Race Theory is definitely a part of that program in today’s Race Marxist regime.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 11: Paulo Freire's Marxification of Education
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 75 (09 May 2022)

    This episode of the New Discourses Podcast continues into a second part a long miniseries exploring Paulo Freire’s landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation, and it is embedded in the broader Critical Education Theory series here. In the previous part, James Lindsay presented the ideas of the fifth chapter, wherein the seeds of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) are laid as Freire describes how education and social work are closely related. [For the other parts of this series that specifically cover Freire’s book, see the table in post #1 of this thread. - OB]

    In this episode, James dives into the first half of the sixth chapter, which goes deeply into Freire’s model for education. In fact, what we see in this episode makes sense of the ones before it while setting the stage for all the ones that follow. Paulo Freire Marxified education itself. That is, Freire redefined literacy, education, and even knowledge according to the usual bourgeois/proletarian dichotomy and thus was able to redefine literacy to mean gaining critical consciousness. Join James to hear about the Marxification of education itself, bearing in mind yet again that almost all of our kids now go to Paulo Freire’s schools.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 12: Paulo Freire and the Birth of Groomer Schools
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 76 (16 May 2022)

    This episode of the New Discourses Podcast continues into a second part a long miniseries exploring Paulo Freire’s landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation, and it is embedded in the broader Critical Education Theory series here. In the previous part, James Lindsay presented the ideas in the first half of the sixth chapter, wherein we see how Freire Marxified education itself. [For the other parts of this series that specifically cover Freire’s book, see the table in post #1 of this thread. - OB]

    In this episode, James takes up the more complex second half of chapter six, revealing how Freire’s “dialogical model” of education is, in fact, the birthplace of what he has elsewhere referred to as “Groomer Schools.” Join him to understand how Freire didn’t just Marxify education but also retooled pedagogy to amount to Marxist political grooming, which is far worse than mere indoctrination.

    So ... would you rather drive over a bridge (or fly on a plane) designed by a "binary system of right answers" or by a "huermenuetics [sic] of disciplinary engagement"? (And the word is "hermeneutics", not "huermenuetics". Or perhaps I'm being too "binary" ...)

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 13: What Is Racial Literacy?
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 77 (23 May 2022)

    A common term of art in the current educational milieu is racial literacy. In fact, here is the giant and influential educational company Pollyanna, Inc., talking about how central racial literacy is to their K-8 education programs. What is racial literacy, though? As you will not be surprised to learn, it is the racial repackaging of Marxist education Theorist Paulo Freire’s critical literacy model using Race Marxism (Critical Race Theory) in place of Critical Marxism (Critical Theory, or neo-Marxism). In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay explores racial literacy in the words of two of its own scholars, making clear how shoddy their so-called “research” really is, at bottom, and that, in fact, “racial literacy” means the priority of the Race Marxification of education, which merely takes Freire’s Marxist education project (Critical Pedagogy) one step further. Join him to gain the confidence you need to understand this concept and push back against it when you see it in your kids’ schools.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 14: Woke Private Schools and the Elite Leninist Vanguard
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 78 (30 May 2022)

    We spend a lot of time talking about the Woke Marxification of North America’s public schools, but what about private schools? As many who send their kids there can tell you, they’re just as Woke, if not Woker. Critical Education Theorists (Critical Pedagogs) have not ignored private schools, just like they haven’t ignored elite private universities that these schools primarily service, but how do they really think about them? In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay reads through a recent academic paper regarding bringing Freirean and Leninist Critical Pedagogy into NAIS-certified private schools, and what is written by Susannah Livingston, recent graduate of GCAS (Global Centre for Advanced Studies and teacher at an expensive private school in New York City, an explicitly neo-Marxist certification mill) is shocking. Join him to learn what elite parents are paying $40,000, sometimes $50,000 a year to subject their children to.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 15: Paulo Freire's Perpetual Cultural Revolution
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 83 (04 July 2022)

    This episode of the New Discourses Podcast continues a long miniseries exploring Paulo Freire’s landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation, and it is embedded in the broader Critical Education Theory series here. In the previous two parts, James Lindsay presented the ideas in the sixth chapter of that book, wherein we see how Freire Marxified education itself and explained the groomer “dialogical” model. [For the other parts of this series that specifically cover Freire’s book, see the table in post #1 of this thread. - OB]

    In this episode, James takes up the seventh chapter of The Politics of Education, wherein Freire outlines the need for and process of “conscientization.” That is, in this chapter, Freire makes it clear that the neo-Marxist consciousness-raising process is what education is actually about. Join him to understand that for Freire, education is about becoming a Marxist and a radical explicitly in the mold of revolutionary guerrillas like Che Guevara.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 16: Paulo Freire and Learning to Remake Man
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 84 (11 July 2022)

    This episode of the New Discourses Podcast continues a long miniseries exploring Paulo Freire’s landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation, and it is embedded in the broader Critical Education Theory series here. In the previous part, James Lindsay presented the ideas in the seventh chapter of that book [see post #19 above - OB], where Freire makes clear that education is really meant to be about conscientization, which is to say becoming Marxist. [For the other parts of this series that specifically cover Freire’s book, see the table in post #1 of this thread. - OB]

    In this episode, James takes up the eighth chapter of The Politics of Education, wherein Freire describes what he calls “The Process of Political Literacy.” That is, in this chapter, Freire explains explicitly that political literacy, which is called cultural competence or racial literacy today, should replace the usual, actual literacy in education. Join him to understand how Freire didn’t just Marxify education but made the entire Marxist project of transforming society and man the centerpiece of his educational project.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 17: The Social-Emotional Learning Bait-and-Switch
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 85 (18 July 2022)

    Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is a key battleground topic in education today. Parents across the country are rightly very upset that what sounds like and could be a very useful program for kids who struggle in certain ways at school has far less wholesome purposes. On the one hand, they're noticing that SEL tends to be misapplied in classrooms and through other subjects, not in controlled therapeutic settings with kids who have been identified to need it. On the other hand, they've noticed far more nefarious uses like data mining of children and a diversion of educational resources into overtly grooming and Marxist programs they don't support or want for their kids. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay goes through a paper on Social-Emotional Learning in the context of the pandemic to reveal that there's an intentional bait-and-switch being sold to school districts (unless they realize what they're doing, which is unconscionable). What sounds good in SEL is being sold to promote "Transformative SEL" (CASEL model) or, in this paper, "Social-Emotional Learning for Social-Emotional Justice (SEL-SEJ)," which is just a different description of essentially the same thing. What's obvious here is how flimsy SEL programs of this type are and also how overwhelmingly Marxist in the Paulo Freirean mold Lindsay is exposing in tremendous depth here on the New Discourses Podcast. Join him to learn about how SEL is definitely not what it might seem to be.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 18: Critical Education Violates the First Amendment
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 87 (01 August 2022)

    Critical Pedagogy in our public schools unambiguously violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. The reason is simple. As Critical Pedagogues themselves say, it has ambitions that can only be framed in religious terms, describes a fundamental concept of man and the world, and gives rise to duties of conscience. According to well-established First Amendment law in the United States, that violates the Establishment Clause. The argument is simple. The conception of man and the world it forwards is not the self-evident base of liberal society, which is by definition secular in this way; it is otherwise. It is the Hegelian-Marxist conception of a world that is transformed into its intended utopian state (literally, “the Kingdom of God on Earth”) by the morally obligated and willful activity of man undertaken with a specific belief, intention, and set of practices. It is a world that demands to be transformed into its ideal state by specific means in accordance with specific beliefs about its organization and operation with “conscientized” man as its intentional transformer. Join host James Lindsay for this episode of the New Discourses Podcast where he makes the argument, neat as neat.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 19: Paulo Freire and the Critical Theft of Education
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 88 (09 August 2022)

    This episode of the New Discourses Podcast continues a long miniseries exploring Paulo Freire’s landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation, and it is embedded in the broader Critical Education Theory series. In the previous part, James Lindsay presented the ideas in the eighth chapter of that book, in which Freire describes “The Process of Political Literacy” and outlines a sweeping program for education as a means to remake Man himself. [For the other parts of this series that specifically cover Freire’s book, see the table in post #1 of this thread. - OB]

    In this episode, James takes up the ninth chapter of The Politics of Education, wherein Freire describes what he calls “Humanistic Education,” as that term is meant by Karl Marx Building on the themes of the previous two chapters (education for conscientization [see post #19 above - OB] and education as a process of political literacy [see post #20 above - OB]), this chapter clarifies how Paulo Freire enabled the theft of education from all potential learners for the purposes of Marxism. It’s an incredible crime against humanity. Join him to understand how Freire enabled the theft of education from our society and our children.

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 20: Paulo Freire's Marxist Easter for Educators
    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 90 (15 August 2022)

    This episode of the New Discourses Podcast continues a long miniseries exploring Paulo Freire’s landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation, and it is embedded in the broader Critical Education Theory series here. In the previous part, James Lindsay presented the ideas in the ninth chapter of that book, where Freire outlines that the purpose of education is to humanize Man and the world, exactly as indicated by Karl Marx. [For the other parts of this series that specifically cover Freire’s book, see the table in post #1 of this thread. - OB]

    In this episode, the last in the formal educational series covering this book, James takes up the first part of the very weird tenth chapter of The Politics of Education, wherein Freire discusses Liberation Theology and the Role of the Church as a parallel educational institution. In this first part of this shocking chapter, before turning to the role he envisions for churches, Freire explains the religious conversion educators must go through in order to be “true” educators. He describes it as a process of spiritual death and rebirth, literally an Easter educators and religious leaders must go through to be resurrected on the side of the oppressed. This is the religious heart of the so-called “pedagogy of the oppressed” at the center of Freire’s entire project and legacy. Join James to understand how Freire enabled the theft of education so that it could be transformed into religious education for the Theology of Marxism.
