Like counterbalance to those visions, that unfortunately still prevail, and from the studies partner-philosophical of science and technology to investigations and educative proposals CTS that have been sustained in the constructivist theory of the learning and are very it jeopardize with the development of abilities and individual and social values, in agreement with the majority of the present educative proposals have been developed. Some of the impelling agencies of proposals CTS in the educative land are: Organization of the United Nations for the Education, Science and the Culture, UNESCO. 2. National for Association Science Technology and Society (NASTS-USA). 3.

National Science Teachers Association (NSTA- the USA). 4. For Association Science Education (ASE-UK). This dimension has like central intention, in the educative scope: to train people able to act like responsible citizens who can make decisions reasoned and democratic on diverse aspects from science and the technology that concerns to him to the society. This dimension in addition can give sense to the knowledge that learn the students. To collaborate to train citizens able to freely think with knowledge of cause and social responsibility.

To contribute to unite the world of science and the technology with the one of the humanities and to serve as motivating element for the students. The objectives of current CTS in field we can agglutinate the educative them in the following: 1. To prepare the student to apply the scientific knowledge in its daily life. 2. To foment the analysis of the social and environmental implications in relation to the scientific and technological development of the nations. 3. To train citizens informed and with capacity to make decisions on present problems and subjects. 4. To develop a critical reasoning with capacity to solve problems. 5. To stimulate the moral and intellectual growth to the students so that they are developed like independent and rational individuals.

One of the evils of our education is to have divided its normative competition in 17 independent communities. Thus, each adopts measures to more colorful which, like the Valencian, that distributes Education for the Citizenship in English. The transference of educative competitions was justified in those regions of own vernacular language that required a different learning. But the generalization of the norm has taken since then to all type of abuses. It is just like it happens to the autonomic televisions, granted initially to only emit programs in languages different from the Castilian and whose later excessive excess has taken to that we have a twenty of channels public, without justification some and absolutely deficit. The autonomic dispersion of education, instead of to look for the excellence has chosen by the abuse and the extravagance, from the pretericin of the Castilian to the other peninsular languages, to the education of any localismo to the detriment of common history, geography and the culture to set of Spain. When Hope Aguirre was already minister of Education wanted to put boundary to similar mistake, establishing a mini common program of Humanities. The minimum that said on this attempt in some academic means was that it was a facist measurement.

And thus we are. In the successive information on the state of the education in the developed countries, the position of Spain is of the last ones. And we continued descending. Not only we were delayed in sciences and mathematics, but the knowledge of the Castilian language every time is more deficient. By all that, clear that an educative pact is urgent. And until a revolution, if they worry to me. I am afraid nevertheless that, like in so many other things, it is only tried to put hot cloth to an endemic disease in our system of values and priorities instead of of realising a surgery that goes beyond the egoistic interests of the turn politicians. But I suspect that is something that will not get to see our sinful eyes.
