CANTERO, Germán et al. Educational reforms and citizenship: in order to think about the context of the new law and education. Cienc. docencia tecnol. [online]. 2006, n.33, pp. 13-45. ISSN 1851-1716.
This research aimed to infer the incidence of educational reforms in the generation of new conditions for citizen education in order to be able to raise awareness about characteristics that this educational model has adopted in cases representative of the diversity that the reforms have imprinted upon the third course of Basic General Education (EGB). Specifically, the research focused on the implemented changes and possible resistances to the EGB3 in five schools considered as fields of practice (three in the Province of Entre Ríos and two in the Province of Buenos Aires), through four main analytic lines which allowed us to understand the educational reform as a social regulation process: teaching working conditions, institutions and subjects evaluation, teachers and professors training and educational materials. The reforms were analyzed as Neoliberal and of so-called modernization processes instruments of regulation and, more specifically, the focus was on the consequences that those processes would have in the conformation of new citizen identities by way of the reforms.
