OYARZUN-MALDONADO, Cristian  y  SOTO-GONZALEZ, Rodolfo. The inadmissibility of standardizing the teaching work: An analysis from Chile. Alteridad [online]. 2021, vol.16, n.1, pp.105-116. ISSN 1390-8642.

Every day, more countries implement reimbursement and standardization policies as a way to solve problems related to equity and quality education. This article examines the design appropriateness of teaching work, based on different standardization mechanisms. Thus, the Henry Mintzberg proposal is used, an organizational theory behavior that proposes coordination mechanisms regarding different ways of organizing work according to its characteristics and objectives. Using this theoretical framework, the Chilean school model is analyzed, which stands out using standardization to regulate processes and results. The analysis confirms the hegemony of these standardization mechanisms using different evaluative and prescriptive devices of the school policy, as well as allows to affirm their inadmissibility because of diverse empirically supported negative externalities. Emanating of mentioned above, the appropriateness of other coordination mechanisms for the design of school policy is discussed, proposing a model that prevails in regulatory forms linked to the development of situated skills, collaborative work and training in socio-educational values.

Palabras clave : Chilean school model; school policies; teaching work; standardization of processes; standardization of results; organizational behavior.
