COSMOPOLITICS: THE LEFT RESTARTS FROM THE RIGHT TO STUDY AND FROM ACCESS TO EDUCATION

by Jacopo Dionisio – National Coordinator of the Union of University Students – Alberto Irone – National Spokesperson Media Student Network

In recent years, education in Italy has been experiencing one of its most profound crises, due to multiple causes, which have led to the downsizing of the world of knowledge, passed through the abandonment of a mass model, with the consequent diffusion of an increasingly “elitist” conception of access to education: fewer families and students can afford to support their studies, finding it difficult to complete their compulsory education and gain access to higher levels of education. All this is part of a context in which the world of education has long been the subject of true and proper disparaging campaigns, which have spread devastating messages such as the one launched a few months ago by Minister Poletti, who had attacked university students who entered the world of work at a later age because they had more time to graduate with full marks. This is just one of the demonstrations of how the relationship between education and the world of work in our country is seen in a completely distorted way.
