The Banking Concept of EducationIn the essay The Banking Concept of Education by Paulo Freire he writes of education today and how it oppresses creativity in students This oppression is a sum of his concept of banking in which the students become the depositories and the teacher the depositor Freire claims something can be done to stop this Banking process and it starts with student recognition that they need to act When the students decide to act the problem posing method comes into play and the students may become individuals I see each and every day these methods used in my own school life as I sit through my dictatorial lectures or contra verse one on one with my professors In reference to my dictatorial lectures my banking experience is a close description to that of Freires when he writes This is the Banking concept of education in which the scope of action allowed to the students extends only as far as receiving filing and storing the deposits Page 349 In my similar classroom students sit down and listen to the teacher in order to gain information that will help them succeed later in life Every day they pay attention to a professor speak his or her knowledge of the subject even if it makes no sense Taking notes and filling there minds with this information that can almost be useless to them This useless information in which we as students are suppose to keep until a given test date and then as ordered regurgitate Freire hates this whole idea of the lack of the individual in the classroom Freire expresses this as he writes but in the last analysis it is the people themselves who are filed away through the lack of creativity transformation and knowledge in this at best misguided system Page 349 I can relate to this quote in my own class where at least 120 people in a stadium
