Ideology, Education and Educational Policies


After a short reflection on the concept of ideology, this paper considers the concept of education and the contributions of two outstanding ideologies nowadays, socialism and liberalism. It is then pointed out that the 21st century requires a different education accordingly, since phenomena like globalization, new technologies or emigration are modifying our world and our own existential context. So, the actions of the educational policies in modern democratic countries, beyond consensus or lack of political agreement, should be planned and carried out stressing the four main issues which in turn were the highlights of each educational approach: efficiency and quality within liberalism, equity and participation in left wing trends.
