The professional ideal of a management team in school inclusion policies in Chile


The objective of this article is to report the results of a documentary study on the professional ideal of a management team prescribed by inclusion policies in the emblematic case of Chilean neoliberalism. For this, 19 official texts (2011-2021) were analyzed using the discourse analysis technique with the analytical tool of interpretive repertoires. The results highlight the figure of a management team that is highly demanded and responsible for the academic performance of the schools, with a focus on curricular coverage, the protocolization of inclusion, and the management of adult-centric school participation. The professional ideal that is built in inclusion policies poses implications, possibilities and limitations that deserve to be discussed in terms of leading inclusive schools.
