Leider stehen erst einige Dokumente zur Freire-Rezeption in den USA zur Verfügung. Diese können von Mitgliedern der Freire-Kooperation per e-Mail angefordert werden. Im weiteren verweisen wir auf Yahoo! und Google

In 1984, Blanca Facundo wrote a critique of Freire's ideas and her own experience using his methods in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Her Critique is a strong dissenting view of a largely uncritical admiration for Friere's work. Even in 2002 it is worth to look for this discussion (Facundo-Mackie-Ohlinger):
