"The Liberationist approach views the teacher as a liberator of the mind. The classical liberationist stresses initiation into ways of knowing and the development of the student's intellectual and moral virtues. The emancipationist variation stresses freeing the minds of students from false consciousness about their class, race, gender, or ethnic status and other forms of social repression."--BOOK JACKET.
