SANTIAGO JIMENEZ, María Evelinda; MURILLO MURILLO, Misael; PARRA VITORINO, Bernardo  y  LAZCANO HERRERO, María Eugenia. Reflexive literacy, permanent building of thought. Polis [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.25, pp.345-363. ISSN 0718-6568.

The role of education is to spread the benefits of living in democratic societies, however, the diáspora of those advantages is connected to globalized economic and political interests; their mission: to anesthetize society so it will silently observe the dismantling of its life project. Traditional education does not promote the ability to read the complexity of the democratic reality. It focuses primarily on lecturing about the "benefits" of modernity, where the majority is destined to be masses of employees, and a minority to "inherit" the élite. This document proposes that for reading this reality, citizens must be literate beyond mere technique that would only serve to read, memorize and write manuals, particularly literacy should be: thoughtful, critical, based on knowledge's dialogue and permanent; but, ethically coordinated by intellectual teachers.

Palabras clave : learning; literacy; thinking; complexity; intellectual teacher.
