OLIVA, María Angélica. Chilean educative policy 1965-2009: what does that weft hide?. Rev. Bras. Educ. [online]. 2010, vol.15, n.44, pp. 311-328. ISSN 1413-2478. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-24782010000200008.
It is discussed the Chilean educative policy from the period, enquiring, what does the weft hide? The conjecture is, the educative policy, except the Allende's Government, shows the neoliberal order institution. Some antinomies are revised, mechanisms of that order, that is introduced in 1965 with the pedagogy by objectives and the human capital theory. This pedagogy is made deeper during the dictatorship period, with the subsidiarity idea, that instigate the change of the State's role, ruled in the 1980 Constitution, still valid current, and present in the General Law of Education. The municipalization, the change in the financing and the lost of the status as public employee of teachers, are a legacy of the dictatorship period. This, unsharp the democratic desire of the current educational policy, transforming it into accomplice of a system that generates inequality and social fragmentation.
