DERECHOS HUMANOS EN LA UNIVERSIDAD

Esta mañana, luego de leer Página 12, diario argentino, compartí a través de redes sociales la que me parece una buena noticia: el debate realizado en la Universidad de Buenos Aires, UBA, sobre la enseñanza de los derechos humanos en la propia universidad. Según la nota, tres expertos de amplia trayectoria discutieron y, evidentemente, convergieron en el imperativo de incluir el tema en las universidades, no solo como una materia.

Interesado hurgué en la página web de la Universidad de Buenos Aires y conocí actividades que ya desarrollan. No es casual. La dictadura cívico-militar de hace 37 años dejó en el país, en sus ciudadanos de aquella época, pero también en los jóvenes de hoy, un inestimable respeto por la memoria y la dignidad, así que los derechos humanos como pilar en la cohesión de la sociedad encontró en esa infausta lección de su historia una extraordinaria motivación para su desarrollo. Que los derechos humanos estén en la UBA, o en la Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, es una expresión de lo que se vive y se huele en las calles, en los medios, como lo pude constatar recientemente en la magna marcha que conmemoró el trágico inicio de la dictadura.

A mi comentario en redes sociales respondió una chica, joven a juzgar por su apariencia, e inteligente (estudió filosofía en la Universidad de Colima). Blanca, se llama. El tono de su opinión absolutamente respetable me sorprendió: ¿para qué estudiar derechos humanos si no se respetan? Preguntaba. Y elaboraba un sintético argumento en su favor, aplicándolo al caso de la educación, con profesores apáticos.

Mi preocupación se ahonda: me temo que la suya es una opinión compartida por mucha gente, joven sobre todo, que no cree en la educación, en los gobiernos, en el progreso social, porque no ven lo que ellos quisieran. Y lo que cada uno desea es absolutamente legítimo, es válido, y aspirar a tener una mejor sociedad solo puede merecer, si es posible, un solidario empujón desde la trinchera de cada uno. Le asiste razón a  Blanca si analizamos situaciones particulares, pero ese pesimismo paraliza, no es la vía más adecuada para la transición hacia una sociedad y hacia una escuela mejores.

Si pensamos que no hemos avanzado (cuando sí lo hemos hecho); si creemos que en la escuela solo hay maldad y apatía, negamos a los muchísimos profesores que sí creen en la educación, en su trabajo y se entregan generosamente en la formación de los más jóvenes. Sí, está claro que en el pensamiento de muchos, me incluyo, no tenemos la sociedad que quisiéramos (ni tampoco la escuela), pero hacernos a un lado del camino es una forma de evadir la responsabilidad ciudadana (y la oportunidad) de luchar para cambiarlas.

    Perhaps we do not respect because exactly we do not study human rights.

    Although not is for me,(I believe for when the teachers begin I finished my study) I expect not finished in a matter of concepts memorizing.

    Young people, we are often disappointed to see that what we are taught does not necessarily apply to real life.
    Realizing the reality, we have two options: do something to change, or have a pessimistic attitude.
    I help more if I trust that can change society.

    True, nobody respects the rights.

    Human rights are a very relevant topic.

    I worry about people who do not know their rights as sometimes are victims of other people.

    You have to believe that everything is fine, but also support everything better.

  6. Maybe the university is not perfect but, in general I feel more balanced that other institutes. I think university’s teachers are more enthusiast is because they did more effort in the past. Many people have the habit of egoism and their families didn’t taught them enough human rights. Probably there are people that their fathers are recomended workers too.
