    LIGUENO ESPINOZA, Sebastián; PALACIOS DIAZ, Diego  and  SANDOVAL DIAZ, José Sebastián. Vulnerabilty in the new educational management discourse: analysis in the Preferential School Subsidy Law Chilean. Revista de Psicologia [online]. 2018, n.19, pp. 207-222. ISSN 2223-3032.

    The present study investigates, through discourse analysis, how the notions of school vulnerability and educational management have been established in the Chilean education legislation. The incorporation of these elements has implied a profound transformation on schools, where the accountability logic coexists with an equality of opportunities value. Based on the interpretative repertoires approach (Potter y Wetherell, 1987), we analyzed the functions that a vulnerable or "critical” student plays in the text corpus of the 20.248 Preferential School Subsidy law. This analysis yielded three kinds of interpretative repertories: a) Equally of Opportunities, b) Technical, and c) Management. Results are discussed in terms of the implications of the vulnerability concept, especially regarding the different logics available in a context of commercialization and education management policies.

    Keywords : School vulnerability; preferential School Subsidy law; educational management; Chilean neoliberalism; interpretative repertoires.
