This solution is not nor can it be found in the banking concept. Those who use the banking approach, knowingly or unknowingly for there are innumerable well-intentioned bank-clerk teachers who do not realize that they are serving only to dehumanize , fail to perceive that the deposits themselves contain contradictions about reality. The more meekly the receptacles permit themselves to be filled, the better students they are. Words that wound: Critical race theory, assaultive speech, and the first amendment. Oppressors always take advantages of such humility of the oppressed, and dehumanize the oppressed by using various social practices.

In order to be, it must become. Third, there is an tendency in Freire to overturn everyday situations so that they become pedagogical.

John Dewey: To me the school is a laboratory for democracy, the children develop the understanding, skills, and dispositions required for democratic life through experience Tozer, Senese, and Violas 108. Freire identifies a number of problems with this system: the information presented to the students is separated from their existential experience, and therefore dull and lifeless; the students are trained to take a passive role in relationship to the world; the world is treated as a static reality separate from the student, and the student is treated as an individual separate from the world, rather than a participant in the on-going creation of reality. The product of each of these workshops was a class syllabus agreed on by the group that included the daily situations where students felt improving their English would help them most.

Each scene depicted conflicts found within the community for students to recognize, analyze, and attempt to resolve as a group. Necessary to the future is an attention to the present in which we vow to set genuine, dialectical education as the bar to initiate advancement, and search for the rebirth of imagination.
