This paper helps understanding the changes faced by high school and its relationship to higher education It assumes that the professionalization and privatization of the educational field are growing. At the same time, two dualities expand and consolidate: academic-pedagogical vs. professional, and public vs. private. This hypothesis is based on the rationality that has presided over this process of change in the institutional environment to concretize it in the everyday educational practice as well as on the changing nature of teachers' work in the context of a transition from a Monopolist Accumulation Regime to a Financial Accumulation Regime.
