Biography

Born to a working-class family in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in 1948, and raised in both Toronto, Ontario and Winnipeg, Manitoba, Professor McLaren taught elementary and middle school from 1974-1979, and most of that time was spent teaching in Canada’s largest public housing complex located in Toronto’s Jane-Finch Corridor.  Cries from the Corridor, McLaren's book about his teaching experiences, made the Canadian bestseller list and was one of the top ten bestselling books in Canada in 1980 (MacLean's Magazine), initiating a country-wide debate on the status of inner-city schools.     

Professor McLaren also worked as a consultant for the National Film Board of Canada and served on the Canadian Cancer Society Educational Subcommittee, 1980-83.  While a doctoral candidate, he developed a pilot television program called Kidding Around for Multicultural TV.  Professor McLaren earned his doctorate in 1984, and served the following year as Special Lecturer in Education at Brock University where he specialized in teaching language arts in urban schools. Professor McLaren moved to the United States in 1985 to help create The Center for Education and Cultural Studies at Miami University of Ohio where he served as Director and held the title of Renowned Scholar-in-Residence and taught from 1985-1993. Professor McLaren then taught at the University of California, Los Angeles from 1985-2013 as a Professor in the Division of Urban Schooling at the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies. Professor McLaren is a dual Canadian-American citizen, having become a US citizen in 2000. Professor McLaren holds Honorary Doctorates from The University of Lapland, Finland and Universidad del Salvador, Buenos Aires, Argentina (Jesuit).

Professor McLaren is the author and editor of nearly 50 books and his writings have been translated into over 25 languages. Five of his books have won the Critic's Choice Award of the American Educational Studies Association. Professor McLaren's book, Life in Schools: An Introduction to Critical Pedagogy in the Foundations of Education (New York: Routledge), has been named one of the 12 most significant writings by foreign authors in the field of educational theory, policy and practice by the Moscow School of Social and Economic Sciences; the list includes Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paulo Freire and Deschooling Society by Ivan Illich and books by Pierre Bourdieu and Howard Gardner.

The charter for La Fundacion McLaren de Pedagogia Critica was signed at the University of Tijuana in July, 2004 and was later moved to Ensenada, Mexico under the title, Instituto McLaren de Pedagogia Critica y Educacion Popular. Instituto McLaren offers courses, degrees and training in popular education and has been named in Professor McLaren’s honor.

Professor McLaren worked closely with educators in Venezuela to develop programs in critical literacy and critical pedagogy as part of the Bolivarian Revolution initiated by the late President Hugo Chavez.

Professor McLaren is associated with Chapman’s historical commitment to the memory of Paulo Freire, as demonstrated by the university’s Freire archive collection and the only known North American bust of the great Brazilian pedagogical theorist.  In 2014, Professor McLaren donated his extensive collection of Latin American revolutionary art to Chapman’s Leatherby Libraries and has also donated his papers and numerous personal artifacts to Chapman’s Paulo Freire Archives.  A scholar and activist whose written work and educational activism attempts to reflect the goals and educational practices developed by his mentor, Paulo Freire, Professor McLaren is a frequent international speaker whose work has a global reach.

Professor McLaren is married to Wang Yan (Angie) of Harbin, China.  Both Angie and Peter are devoted Chapman Panther football and basketball fans and Peter still roots for his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team.  A devout Catholic, Professor McLaren is a member of Holy Family Cathedral in Orange, California.  Among his heroes he includes the late Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador, Marxist theorist Raya Dunayevskaya and Brazil’s legendary educator, Paulo Freire.
