In this tradition the teacher works to lead students to question ideologies and practices considered oppressive including those at school , and encourage "liberatory" collective and individual responses to the actual conditions of their own lives. The student often begins as a member of the group or process he or she is critically studying e.
After the student begins to view present society as deeply problematic, the next behavior encouraged is sharing this knowledge, paired with an attempt to change the perceived oppression of the society.
