DEL ROIO, Marcos. Gramsci and the education of the educator. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2006, vol.26, n.70, pp. 311-328. ISSN 1678-7110. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622006000300003.
When he founded the journal L'Ordine Nuovo in 1919 - which went through several different phases -, Gramsci tried to develop a political practice and theory that focused on education as the core constitutive element. Before his imprisonment in 1926, Gramsci evolved through three different stages to frame this issue. He first prioritized scission, antagonism and workers' self-organization against capital within the very capitalist production process. Education thus overlapped self-education. The next stage centers on the need to educate the newly-founded communist party, particularly its directors and organizers. The third stage started when Gramsci came to consider the importance of educating the mass educators, a development that can be seen in his role as the main ICP leader.
