Preface to Learning and Social Difference

"Critical pedagogy has been developed over the past several decades as a counterweight to right-wing ideologues whose fustian (and Faustian) proclamations darkly denouncing liberal educators as enemies of civilization only add to the mawkish legacy of the neoliberal state's assault on public schooling. In addition, critical pedagogy has shed important light on the limited advances of liberal reformism, exposing its conspiracy of good intentions as little more than readjusting capitalism while at the same time readjusting to its readjustments."
