Fear for what is becoming

Hope for what is coming

Hope for what is becoming

There is a place for me

There is no place for me.

You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore

Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed.

You cannot un-educate the person who has learned to read.

You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride.

You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore.
-Cesar Chavez

The Role of Education

“Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.”
― Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed
