Ethnic Education and Community Development
The bachelor in Ethnoeducation and Community Development (BECD) during his/her professional career will be involved in the development of a role that will give him/her a power that is shared with others. He/she is no longer the educator that repeats protocols and guides, nor the educator that is the result of the powers that subdue him (Elite, Church, Government). His/hers professional career is closer to the guidelines of an education that values the cultural experience of the subjects, the product emerging of the communities and groups and resources of the land.
The BEDC promotes an education produced by, with and for all involved. This means that the different types of rationalities and its products are summoned and they will undergo a dissection that will counteract the dominant influences of the western rationality.
The perspective enounced implies the self education of the BEDC, which means the creation or opening of spaces for reflection and professional practice that didn’t exist in the education scenario. Because these spaces were not created in the past due to multiple historical determinations they can only be conquered when their pertinence is shown and the necessity is proven as goals for the indispensable formation for the social and community subject.
