LAS ESCUELAS: DESOLACIÓN Y ENCANTO

Portada EscuelasEn el marco de las actividades del Seminario de Cultura Mexicana, corresponsalía Colima, este jueves 27 de noviembre, a las 20 horas, se presentará mi libro “Las escuelas: desolación y encanto”, en el Archivo Histórico de la Universidad de Colima. Dos personas con quienes me unen viejas amistades y a quienes respeto entrañablemente hará los comentarios: Víctor de Santiago y Salvador Silva Padilla; con la moderación de otro respetable colega, Mario Rendón y Lozano. ¡Una alineación de lujo! A continuación les comparto el Prólogo que abre el pequeño librito.

PRÓLOGO. En el campo educativo, los territorios complacientes y triunfalistas están conquistados e invadidos por optimismos de ocasión: desinformados, bienintencionados o interesados por subordinaciones mundanas. Por ese superávit, niebla que estorba la perspectiva, este pequeño texto está alejado de la indulgencia y tampoco se detiene a la hora de fustigar a quienes promueven ese tipo de escuela o universidad que Ortega y Gasset describió repleta de chabacanería, que promete dar y exigir lo imposible por incompetencia o el cinismo actual.

Este manuscrito es parte de un proyecto más amplio sin punto final a la vista, por eso comparto un avance y lo someto al escrutinio crítico del público que se atreva a leerlo y comentarlo, discutirlo, refutarlo e, incluso, difamarlo. El proyecto se llama “La enfermedad de la institución escolar”; el pre-juicio, desde su título, quizá explique tono y contenido.

Más que sumarme a los enterradores de la escuela, busco pistas para la ilusión y el entusiasmo prudentes, que dignifiquen a la otra escuela posible, hospedada en la imaginación de muchos en el pasado y en prácticas contemporáneas, aunque marginales. Dicha exploración es inviable en el vacío o intentando borrar historia y circunstancias.

Crítica y propuesta, denuncia y anuncio son inherentes al etos pedagógico desde posturas críticas. Expongo la primera parte. La segunda será contada pronto.

La mayor parte de estas ideas, casi en su escritura original, fueron pergeñadas durante mi estancia en la Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Argentina, respirando otros aires y en otra atmósfera educativa, con otras compañías intelectuales y sociales, caminando otras calles y descubriendo sueños posibles.

El propósito está alejado de posicionar el debate desde la fe, pero se inspira en un concepto, la buena educación, que nos legó Pablo Latapí Sarre, con los siguientes atributos: promoción del carácter, los sentimientos, la inteligencia y la libertad.

Lo contrario sería, en esta perspectiva, la mala educación, es decir, el producto de las malas escuelas, aquellos edificios con sus maestros, autoridades y prácticas ubicadas en República de la Burocracia casi esquina con Imperio de los Mercaderes. Son las escuelas caracterizadas por la insustancialidad, simulación, irrelevancia, corrupción y prácticas huecas. La escuela y la universidad inspiradas por la lógica clientelar y las modas. La escuela solapada por gobiernos ineficientes, políticas intrascendentes y ministros incultos en materia pedagógica. La escuela que tolera malas prácticas, aislada de la realidad, madrastra de maestros nocivos. La misma que cada año expulsa un millón de niños y adolescentes mexicanos; que excluye y destruye; la universidad de papel. La escuela virtual por irreal, no por digital. La escuela silenciosa y silenciada, que castra la curiosidad, que domestica y mata la pasión por el aprendizaje y la enseñanza, auspicia la competencia incompetente y la insolidaridad; que prefiere clientes a ciudadanos. La institución enferma de fiebre evaluadora.

Contra esa escuela y esa educación escribo estas páginas, esperanzadas en la posibilidad del cambio que, como aprendimos de Paulo Freire, es difícil pero posible.
