Concerns and changes in Arts Education: more than ever an urgency

Concerns and changes in Arts Education: more than ever an urgency — The article is written in the first person, as an exercise in reflection, from the breadth of political responsibility of an arts education teacher, involved in the crossroads of a controversial time where the dignity and indispensability of the artistic presence in schools faces an ultra liberal offensive that intends to erase it, in favor of a utilitarian school that feeds the needs of the hegemonic system and provides docile and dormant subjects. The controversies that face human dignity in the contemporary world require us to understand that, in the educational field, we do not search for a model that opposes them but that we can create possibilities of confrontation with the new.
