The book deals with essential aspects of the task of education. Written by an experienced, veteran teacher of maths- Ricardo Moreno Castillo-. Nowadays, there is a growing tendency in Spain to follow any new methodology or idea coming from abroad in education and learning. Ricardo Moreno takes extracts from revolutionary theories, analyses them and shows the viewpoint from the other side.

Moreno Castillo shows by means of deep conviction and years of teaching experience that sometimes the old method is not necessarily wrong. He defends the importance of learning, the relevance of authority and study, the absurdity in changing things which will always be right.

However, the passion for education is not the enemy of innovation. The author appreciates the knowledge of the classics, the gravity of real thinking and the search for truth.

Ricardo Moreno criticizes the false idea of students having to be happy all the time at school and some more fantastic things of the Promised Land who some new theoreticians of pedagogy are trying to sell teachers and society as the solution to ignorance and failure.

I could not explain better than Ricardo Moreno himself all the things he deals with in the book. Nevertheless, I can do two things: first, recommend you the reading of those 195 pages; and second, enjoy the reading.

NOTE.-

Thanks to the Library of Murcia (@brmu, twitter) for the inter-library loan service which allowed me taking the book home.

The book has not been translated to any other language than Spanish. The author wrote a brilliant book “Panfleto Antipedagógico” (El lector universal), 2006. Barcelona-156 pages; which is still inspiring for people related to education. The book reviewed above: “La conjura de los ignorantes“, Ricardo Moreno Castillo (Los pasos perdidos), 2016. Madrid-195 pages.
