Jefferson Laffey BA ’02 writes: “I’m still teaching adults earning their GEDs, and recently the local community college (unwisely?) gave me charge over a class of youth who hope to become teachers themselves. I wanted to introduce them to Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, so they would have at least heard about it. Then I thought maybe I should actually read it. Now after all these years I discover that I am a “banking model” oppressor teacher! Should’a actually read that one years ago. Anyway, I kinda doubt they will let me teach for them again, but you never know. Also, I am still married to a nice lady named Arlenne, and we have two kids named Allende (6) and Saornil (4). P.S. I miss all of you!”
