Contestation, conflict, and contradiction are
part and parcel of real life and, by implication, of education.
There is a naïveté in imagining that life can be lived
without struggle, or that education could be provided without tensions
or conflicts. The journal Currículo sem Fronteiras understands
this basic epistemological principle of critical pedagogy and transformative
social action aiming, in the best of the Freirean tradition, to
set the tone for a serious conversation about politics and pedagogy
as social activism.
Currículo sem Fronteiras is an impressive
and original contribution to the critical educational tradition.
It challenges us to think about the relationship between capitalism
and pedagogy, and is especially instructive for those of us struggling
against the myriad forms of exploitation and oppression that result
from such a relationship. Especially at this current historical
moment we need journals such as Currículo sem Fronteiras
whose discussions and analyses span regions, countries, and continents,
and bring us closer together within a collective vision of liberation
that is at once critical and filled with hope.
In difficult times like
this, critical education theory and practice are even more needed.
Currículo sem Fronteiras comes at a very appropriate time.
sem Fronteiras will not only be a space for the advancement of knowledge
in the field of education, but also for the rise of strategies and
practices geared toward the construction of more just and democratic
schools and societies.
