Four conceptions about Educational Planning in Argentina’s Educational Reform of the 1990s

Main Article Content

Abstract

This article analyses four patterns of planning in the educational reform in Argentina since the approval of the Federal Law of Education: first, planning focused on change, without enough attention to measures that could be useful to consolidate the educational system; second, planning was anchored in a vision of change that may be described as applicable and progressive, as if the impact that change may have on institutions and agents could be predicted; third, planning focused on centralized policies in order to homogenize and organize the systems, despite the goal of bringing the educational system under the jurisdiction of a federal-government-type system; and fourth, a work division was established between the Nation and the provinces, between planning and execution, and between technical and political issues of the reforms.
