What is popular education? Popular Education means “liberative” education. It is relevant. It is needed. It is an education that exposes and then breaks the cultural and structural bonds hindering people’s enlightenment and empowerment. Pop-Ed is education for social change. It challenges the traditional way of ‘teaching’ people, an ‘education’ that makes them passive learners; one that silences them and makes them conform. It challenges attitudes and social structures that oppress people.
