Abstract

This article deals with a critical perspective on modern schooling based on my own experience as a child and young adult. I illustrate the effects of what I call a pedagogic of detachment and argue for a decolonial option of the modern school system. I will start with my personal history as a minority pupil in Argentina and will also use cases from my experiences as an immigrant in the Norwegian school system and from my ethnographic work among the Mbya-Guaraní in Northern Argentina.
