Message to students

The right of education is one of the basic human rights. Many people think that the education can open opportunities to all the people. In global society, the policy of "Education for All" has been agreed upon and carried out from 1990, and the modern public educational system has been diffused in many developing countries with international assistance. Education can give many possibilities to the people, and at the same time it has enabled reproduction of the established hierarchy of the society throughout history. The feminist movement began with demands of education for women, but simultaneously it was the educational system which had limited women's conduct and internalized in them the gender role of each historical period. We have to be conscious of such limits of education. While the modern educational system which was invented by developed western countries has been adopted and diffused in many developing countries, the necessities of each region’s own system which is characterized by the culture of the countries are required. Comparing the educational systems in Latin American regions and elsewhere, let us investigate the possibilities and limitations of education.

Soy Reiko Matsuhisa, profesora de educación comparada y estudios de Latinoamérica, doy la clase de “educación y género” y la clase de “política educativa en Latinoamérica” desde el punto de vista del género en el posgrado.
La educación desempeña un papel muy importante en la reproducción de la sociedad y en la formación de individuos bajo las normas y reglas sociales establecidas, a la vez abre infinitas posibilidades para el desarrollo humano, de ahí que el derecho a la educación sea uno de los derechos fundamentales del ser humano. Sin embargo, en el mundo todavía hay muchos niños y niñas que no pueden recibir educación por causa de la pobreza, por discriminación u otras razones. La educación tiene multiples facetas que para nosotros que nos parece natural asistir a la escuela y recibir educación escolar nos son desconocidas.
Los invito a estudiar e investigar conmigo sobre la educación desde diversas perspectivas analíticas y comparar las políticas educativas de cada región.
