LANGER, Eduardo. The fears in times of crisis according to teachers and students of Argentina. Universitas [online]. 2018, n.28, pp.19-38. ISSN 1390-8634.

This paper address the meanings and the sense that secondary teachers and students of urban poverty schools in the suburbs of Buenos Aires (Argentina) assign to their fears in times of crisis. The goal is to describe the tensions between fear and hopes contained in those meanings and senses, whether inside or outside of the school context. The central question of this paper is how and why, despite living –and surviving– in a state of societal crisis which produces many fears in people, both teachers and students value the school as useful, and have hopes about their education and training, and also about their future. The paper answers to this question within the framework of a multiple research methods process which includes interviews and in-depth observations to students and teachers; audiovisual productions in a secondary school; and action and intervention with all secondary schools of the San Martin District of Buenos Aires. The results of the discussion are that in spite of the fears, the uncertainty, and the disorientation that seems to prevail in the school; teachers and students also have hopes, wishes, dreams, and projects, even in conditions where it seems there is no place for them.

Palabras clave : Fears; crisis; school; teachers; students; poverty.
