In our considerations
about the educational system you will not find the same old chatter on
how to improve it. For us the school institution is a reproduction in
scale of the society. Besides it's continuous changes it has always taken
on the characteristics of a prison.
Starting from this consideration, and also being firmly convinced that
jail cannot be in anyway reformed, humanized or improved, we fell that
we can affirm that the school, like jails and the society, must be demolished.
this preface is fundamental to understand with which destructive disposition
we have related ourselves to the "school question". On the other
hand it couldn't have been any different: authoritarianism, repression
and selection is all that is guarantied to a student on his/hers desk
and, naturally, certain things that we don not intend to reply with reforms,
comprises or syndicate battles.
Our greatest wish is to knock down the school, by this we will be able
to free ourselves definitely from rules, sense of duty, discipline and
useless school programmes.
The hours passed hearing duct graduates who sit proudly on the other side
of the teachers desk are only the anteroom of inoccupation and precariousness.
What's more the latest school reforms (first the Berlinguer and then the
Moratti reform) shows how the school should change according to the changement
of the work market is taking on. In this case the capacity to transform
young people into puppets easily exploitable and flexible for the job
market ready to become productive even when there is no remuneration guaranteed.
In front of such a scene the conflictuality that we have to devolpe and
support is the one that derives from our material needs and from our material
needs and from the real contradictions created by this system.
To favour the programmes of the neo-leaders of the persistent "student
movement" would mean to justify the obsolete schemes that want to
repropose rules, hierarchies and authoritarianism. The obvious distances
that separate us from this type of intervention has bought us to right
what is in this site, bringing together our personnel experiences and
our collective analyses.
The knowledge of what you want to destroy is obviously one of the reasons
that bought us to write this analyses on the school. But the clearness
of the contents and of the intents that make a project useful. We hope
that these analysis help alimenting fires everywhere that there is a report
student-teacher, son/daughter-parent, kid-authority takes the semblance
of a battle, of a generational conflict ready to raze to the ground all
those schemes of discipline that are imposed to us in and out of school.
