This article presents a discussion on the change process that we think must be related to this accentuating trend. Besides presenting context, which explains the emergency of said interest, a line towards the concept of the educational system regulation is drawn, making a distinction to, at least, two sides of it. One side is tied to de direct acting of the state and related to the internal actions taken by educational organizations, this allows us to conclude that we are presented with a with a state driven ideology. The article is divided into four parts, an introduction that relates the general idea of the text, an general context in which the discussion is centered, an specific context in which the view is limited and highlights the key elements of the problem, and a thesis on the discussion.
