Henry Giroux on Critical Pedagogy

 

Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff of the Project Censored Show speak with author/educator Henry Giroux. Giroux explains the concept of 'critical pedagogy,' and the pivotal role that education plays for the whole of society. He warns of the increasing domination of the world by the ultra-rich, and a new form of anti-intellectualism fostered by a failing corporate media. Among the measures the left must take to resist these forces, he cites the formation of a broad-based third political party, and more academics taking on the duties of public intellectuals, rather than limiting themselves to the campus.
