Keywords: Official curriculum | Conservatism | Ecclesial influence over education

In this article we reflect about the official curriculum which was negotiated in Argentina, in July 1995, in the context of the new educational reform carried out by the Federal Law of Education (1992). In that period, a group of technicians of the Ministry of Education resigned since they were discontent with the results of the pressure of the churches to the Menen’s government. The hard negotiation process which intended to select the school contents with the participations of the civil society was abruptly affected by the pressure of the ecclesiastic authorities. Depart from that, some contents such as Darwin ’s theory of evolution, the concept of gender and other, were eliminated of the official curriculum. Since 2006, there is a new Education Law in Argentina and we ask if the ultramontane ideas are not coming back to triumph.
