Through Freires The Banking Concept of Education we see the effects this concept has on its students and also we see the effects that the alternate concept problem-posing has The banking concept allows the students to become vessels of knowledge not being able to learn at a creative pace By using communism seeing through how education is taught in the classroom it is parallel to Freires banking concept We can see that both ideas are similar and both were harmful to the human mind While banking poses the threat of creative growth and power Marxism which applies Marxs ideas to learning in a communistic way it creates the threat of never being able to learnThe banking concept is a gift bestowed by those who consider themselves knowledgeable upon those who they consider to know nothing Freire 213 The goal of the banking concept is to deposit as much information into the students as possible This results in disconnected memorization without the real understanding and discouragement of creative thoughtThey cannot think for themselves As Marx writes just as there are two types of learning banking and problem-posing he explains that society is this way also There is the upper class and subordinate classes They both struggle for economic and political power and the primary way the upper class keeps its power is through their beliefs and values They are allowed to think The subordinate classes believe they are subordinate due to the upper classes prestige and way of thinking Like Freires banking concept education is the way to keep students down and this works because the students accept all knowledge from the teacher just like the dominant class in Marxs ideology keeps the subordinate classes submissiveThere are also things that make Freires ideas of teaching that leave Marx at a disadvantage This is because most submissive people will eventually fight back to get their ideas heard So therefore the banking concept has a flaw in itself
