This paper explores Paulo Freire‘s philosophy of education and its critical relevance to the paradigm of modern education. Paulo Freire‘s idea will be employed to essentially criticize the hegemonic paradigm of modern education. This paper affirms that market oriented - based modern education has reduced and downgraded the true meaning of education. This paper supports the ideas of Robert Young, Henry A. Giroux, Ivan Illich, Peter McLaren, Joe L. Kincheloe, Michael W. Apple, Stanley Aronowitz and M. Agus Nuryatno, who generally argue that education should not degraded its values into a purely economic purposes. Education must be understood as a means to develop the individual potential in realizing itself as the subject that is not merely being in the world, but also actively engaging into it, and transforming it for a better one.
