Revolutionary Pedagogy

I've just discovered the exciting writing and theory of Peter McLaren on radical pedagogy while reading the Capilano Review issue on manifestos (3.13, 2011), and am seeking out his other texts. A great moment from his manifesto here:

“The fact is, surely, that we are faced with two choices of how to live our humanity—the liberal model of pleading with the corporations to temper their cruelty and greed, or the reactionary model that has declared war on social and economic equality. And on the evidence that each of these models is fiercely and hopelessly entangled in each other’s conflictual embrace, we can accept neither.” 

(Peter McLaren “Revolutionary Critical Pedagogy for a Socialist Society: A Manifesto”)
