Education must be an act of Humanity

Education has not always been a transversal system and an opportunity-enhancer. Today, more than ever, it is important to study its history to understand which contours have been opened and new paradigms may emerge.

The XIV Ibero-American Congress on the History of Education (CIHELA), in virtual format, from 20 to 23 July, was based on the theme "Revolution, Modernity and Memory: Paths in the History of Education". This edition was marked by the 200th anniversary of the Portuguese Revolution of 1820, the date from which the construction of a modern school model to promote literacy and schooling began.
