Education and Social Change in Latin America free pdf This book examines the multiple relationships between education, pedagogy, and social change in Latin America and beyond. Marrying a thorough discussion of the theories of such thinkers as Paulo Freire, Antonio Gramsci, and Henri Lefebvre with analysis of how their work can be usefully applied to think about education and society in modern Latin America, this book shows how educational institutions in Latin American can be and are being transformed. With contributions on numerous countries as well as the region as a whole from scholars who are committed to social change, Education and Social Change in Latin America is both a guide to understanding the politics of knowledge in Latin America today and a road map for how we might continue to transform them.
