"The teacher is of course an artist, but being an artist does not mean that he or she can make the profile, can shape the students. What the educator does in teaching is to make it possible for the students to become themselves." ~ Paulo Freire
Paulo Freire is the theorist who sticks out the most to me in this class! This quote basically iterates that education can do one of two things; liberate students from preconceived societal ideals, or mindlessly integrate them into those ideas.
