Complexity and education

Francisco López Rupérez


The educational systems of avanced societies are a good example of highly complex systems. Their size, the multiplicity of components, the richness of interactions and the role of the socioeconomical environment are basic factors that explain their complexity. This article vindicates the complexity paradigm as an adequate epistemological frame for scientific analysis and policy-making in education.
