ABSTRACT
La reforma educativa que se implementó en Argentina en la década de los ´90 no puede entenderse al margen del proceso de Reforma del Estado y las políticas de desregulación, descentralización y privatización de los servicios sociales. En este proceso se pone en cuestión el papel histórico desempeñado por el Estado en materia educativa a la vez que comienza a trasladarse la responsabilidad por la garantía del derecho a la educación a las instituciones y a las familias. Estas transformaciones ponen en cuestión el carácter público de la educación pública, instaurando nuevos sentidos e impulsando la conformación de un espacio público no estatal “localizado” entre el Estado y el mercado. El presente trabajo analiza el proyecto de Escuelas Autogestionadas (“Escuelas 2001”) de la Provincia de San Luis (Argentina) teniendo en cuenta tanto la lógica que orienta el desarrollo e implementación de esta política como las representaciones de los actores involucrados sobre la educación, el Estado y lo público. The educational reform that took place in Argentina during the ´90s should be analyzed in the context of a broader reform process implemented in the whole of Latin America during that period, aimed at reforming the State and introducing deregulation, decentralization and privatization policies. During this process, the role that the Sate traditionally held in education is redefined, and the responsibility of guaranteeing the right to education is transferred form the State to the families and the schools. These transformations redefine the public character of public education, introduce new meanings in the debates and views about when something should be considered public or not in the field of education and foster the creation of a non- state public space which could be placed between the State and the market. This paper aims at analyzing the project “Escuelas 2001” which seeks to implement charter schools in San Luis, Argentina. The analysis is based on a two-fold approach: on the one hand, it takes into consideration the logic underlying the design and implementation of this policy; on the other hand, it focuses on the actors’ views about education, the State and public institutions.
