Disregard the class below. I had to put that there or it wouldn't let me submit the interview. This evaluation is for Education C125, Politics of Education, which he taught in Fall 2010 with Prof. Juma. First of all that class was very mislabeled. It should really be called Paulo Freire because everything we did in that class centered around him. All the books were either written by him, about him or inspired by him. It was ridiculous. I hated Freire by the time the class was over. Now on to the professors. My GD can Pescador talk! I mean the class was 4 hours long and he could talk and talk about any little thing. I swear I had brain cells dying hearing him talk. He would continuously say we would get out early only to have us actually stay longer because he couldnt stop talking! Prof. Juma was better. He was more direct and got to the point faster but he basically took a back seat to Pescador. It was basically 80% Pescador and 20% Juma. Now for the structure of the class. The entire class was group work so you better make sure you're in a great group otherwise you're going to end up doing alot of work on your own. And by everything I mean everything. You never turn in an assignment or paper that you have done individually, which can be a good or bad thing depending on your group. Now having said all the above I will admit that this class is an easy A. They grade very easy and as long as you do the work there is no reason why you shouldn't get an A. Would I recommend this class? Only if you think an A is worth being in a class for 4 hours with a prof who cant stop talking about the same guy and the same concepts for 10 weeks.
