The “banking concept of education” is a very traditional understanding of education where there is a big difference between the role of the teacher and the role of the student and it will be discussed in this paper. …

This has not universally been the case, like everyone I have benefited from a wide array of extremely talented teaches who wanted to hear their students ideas, to include their students in discussions and to reinforce to their students that even if they might not have as much academic expertise as their professors, their lived experiences may provide them with valuable insights and render their contributions valuable to any class discussion. But the fact remains that most of my teachers used the banking style of education, and probably though that is the best kind of education. This has affects me in a lot of ways, such as making me not creative and making my critical thinking worse. But by far the most important influence this theory of education has had on me is the fact that it has begun make me oppressive to other people like my teachers were oppressive to me. As mentioned before, oppression makes oppression, and those who have been oppressed kind of naturally let the oppression they have had go through them unless they work very hard to not let that happen. This means that, though I understand when I think about it that the banking theory of education is inherently oppressive, and separates students from educators in a very bad way, there is probably still a large part of me that thinks education looks like the banking theory of education. This also probably means that whenever I get into an education place, I will have to work hard to stop this oppressive theory of education from coming through me, to make sure that whenever I am teaching someone whether as a peer, an educator or just in the world, I recognize the banking theory of education and try to stop it....
This essay approves that the educator does, in this concept, work as a “depositer” whose role is to deposit information, narratives, and a lot of other things into the students, who function as “banks” for the depositing. Whichever student “banks” the best, by memorizing the material given to him or her by the teacher, by being able to “return” the information to the depositer closest to the way it was inputed, wins, is the best bank and is rewarded. There are obviously lots and lots of problems with this system, and many of them are really bad (such as the objectification of students, the saying the students experiences aren’t valuable, and treating them as having no knowledge in and of themselves and not having anything of value to give to the depositer that they were themselves not first given. Any educator who has studied in the past ten year must inherently understand the problems with this system, and yet people fall back into it perpetually.
This report makes a conclusion that the banking theory of education still used everywhere, and when most people think of a classroom setting they probably think of the banking theory of education taking place. What this means to people who have been affected by this theory of education is that they must recognize the oppression in it, and work hard to break apart this oppression whenever they enter an educational environment. Anything less will simply mean perpetuating this oppression.

I don’t think knowledge is something people can learn directly from books or teachers’ lessons because it cannot be learnt without understanding. But I do believe that people may gain knowledge from their daily life experiences and practices. Being a student in China for the last ten years, I discovered that the way Chinese teachers overload their students with the burden of memorizing so many textbooks leads to three bad results, which both Paulo Freire and Mike Rose have also discussed in their essays “the Banking Concept of Education” and “ I Just Wanna Be Average” respectively, which are: i) The knowledge which students gain through memorizing the textbooks is only restricted

Freire divides education types into two broad categories: banking and problem posing.

Like any other student in college, I have also faced the scenario in which I had to apply the arguments of Paulo Freire especially in relation to an event that occurred in during a class session I attended. The ways the instructor built and carried out the class In this particular day, I learnt or came to acceptance of the facts that a person can learn to relate the nature of instructions given by their tutors in relation to the benefits derived from the same.

method is described by Paulo Freire as being oppressive through the perception of students as empty vessels into whom knowledge is deposited by teachers. The banking method of education is therefore ineffective in providing knowledge as compared to the problem posing
