Knowledge are the defining images of Argentine teachers. The daily actions, even under the most adverse conditions, and build knowledge promoted the image of Argentine teachers, where poverty abounds and children demand attention. Perhaps some time when poverty begins to decrease and worried about the image, that image, that of the brochures, for now the image is carried inside, deep inside.
