I was rather interested in Michel de Verteuil’s comment (in: Let All the Peoples Praise Him: Lectio Divina and the Psalms) that
because of the insights of great educators like Paulo Freire, we are conscious that the education system encourages passivity; it frustrates God’s plan for humanity.
I can certainly relate to our education system encouraging passivity, which seems true in so many ways. I’ve thought before that I ought to read Paulo Freire myself sometime. De Verteuil’s comment has just reinforced that.
