Education might just be the most important human activity. Most of us have been involved in educational activity, whether in schools or other learning programmes, for the majority of our lives, yet most of us rarely have very good memories of that activity, and for some it even represents extremely negative memories.
In this Folk High School Class – Education and Pedagogics- we are trying to find out “why education sometimes goes bad”.
We will be examining the educational relation between individual and society using theories of Grundtvig, John Dewey, Paulo Freire and Malcolm Knowles, while also looking comparatively at some of the educational systems we have experienced!
