Ephemeris of the day - September 19, 1921 Paulo Freire was born

Paulo Freire's biography 

The Brazilian educator revolutionized the country's pedagogy by reflecting on the construction of a democratic school and a new approach to the relationship between educator and student, which placed the horizontal exchange of knowledge and experiences as the basis of learning.

Recognized internationally (29 titles of “honorary doctor” were granted to him by universities in Europe and America), Paulo Freire remains extremely current. Reading his work allows for the maturing of concepts such as the need for an education practiced from a critical and autonomous perspective for the formation of subjects capable of politically and socially transforming their realities.

Faced with the current urgency of rescuing and defending these precepts, the Centro de Referências em Educação Integral elaborated the list below: a definitive guide for free download of its bibliography for educators and others interested in the subject. Check out:
