Talk about education in Argentina

The goal of education should be the development of creative, autonomous individuals, with social values of solidarity, empathy and growth.


Statistics,  news  and experiences of failures, desertion,  stopovers  , lack of updating, devaluation of the role of the educator, etc., etc. The picture appears darker and disappointing every year.

But  education  is the opposite, it is  hope ,   health   ,  prosperity ,   growth.

Where do we fail, that we are not seeing our future as a  society ?

We will try to unravel the  educational  problems in order to bring light and together find hopeful answers.

The first thing is to be very clear about the objectives, what for formal and informal education. What do I expect from the  educational result, what do I see when I look forward?

Many times I have heard: “I want my children to be creative, determined, played by their ideas”; I want my  students to “read more, build thoughts, understand and express about their own experiences...”

Are we looking to open up to new experiences? As adults, do we understand  learning as an endless  process of growth? and for this do we generate spaces for creativity, reading areas, respect choices even if they do not agree with preset ideas?

As a mother, I often see myself closing doors, making arbitrary decisions, calling silence in the name of respect.

As a teacher, we standardize knowledge, generalize processes, again calling for silence in the name of respect.

Clearly, our biggest problem is that we don't know what we're looking for and expect from the educational process. If we're not clear about the  target , where will we get?

It's like getting on a plane without knowing if when we get off it will be winter or summer, if in my suitcase I have to store flops or skis. Without knowing the goal, the trip will surely be dizzying and full of immediate emergencies, impossible to camper.

For now there are more questions than answers, the  educational approach tends to be more a question than an absolute and definite truth, but the goal of   education  must be the development of creative, autonomous individuals, with social values of solidarity, empathy and growth. Each will see what their path is and the role they should assume.
