The production of subjectivity does not pass, then, from the school, but from other training agencies, as media and mercatistiche. Reforms "meritocratic" actually aim to counter the egalitarian values and the role assigned to public school from the republican constitution. The teachers have been subjected to years a strong media and political attack because they are also one of the few islands of "resistance" to this microphysical authoritarianism.
