That person with the Brazilian flag
Hello! Though I'm afraid the Brazilian flag is gone; I'm doing a "flags of the world" thing and it's on to the next one.

may wish to know I read "Pedagogy of the Oppressed" (translated by Ramos) by Paulo Freire (30th anniversary edition) and found it very good for a treatise on Marxist revolutionary education.
I've heard of Pedagogy of the Oppressed! There was quite a stir last year over it in Arizona -- a Mexican-American studies program in public high schools using it got shut down, and the instructors were accused of all manner of horrible things for using it. The book was banned from school libraries, IIRC.
