The objective of this article is to study the contribution of Sociology to education. This study has been done from the analysis of the main postulates of Emile Durkheim, since his theories we will understand the existing interactions between society and education. Society, according to Durkheim, represents a social power that regulates the individuals themselves who depend on everyone and form a collective coexistence aligning in a harmonious way, but at the same time preserving their individuality and belonging to culture, to identity, to knowledge, with values, relevant attributes to maintain social cohesion and survival of society. In this context, education modulates with guidelines issued by Durkheim, an education integrated in the plurinationality and interculturality of our society, called to preserve our language, our intercultural worldview and to develop capacities and potentialities directed to the development of the cognitive-productive matrix in Function of an ethical, organic, social and cultural subject. Based on Durkhenian theory, this study wants to strengthen learning spaces. Learnings that build and strengthen identity through social consciousness, becoming a transcendent and innovative organization of justice and equitable societies, intellectually strengthened through conceptual, psychomotor and socio-affective knowledge. Empowering the role of education is the objective to humanize the human being mediated by the pedagogical dynamism with methods, contents, objectives, didactic techniques that build the teaching-learning process, generating the individual and integral formation of the person in a framework of social and ethical commitment.
