The Foundation Rosa Luxemburg and the Brigada para Leer en Libertad share with you the book "No habrá recreo. Contra-reforma constitucional y desobediencia magisterial" by the journalist Luis Hernández Navarro. This publication is distributed free of charge and it can be obtained in different book presentation activities arranged by the brigade La Brigada para Leer en Libertad.

"Day after day, one hour prior to the end of the day classes, students will sing in the room their dreams and the professor will discuss with them about it. Just when the day was about to end the professor will remind them “you already know your homework: before going to sleep, take a deep breath and close your eyes. Think about something pleasant you experienced or you would like to do until you fell asleep. And as soon as you are awake, the first think you should do is to write about your dreams”.

This type of professors is the one that the education reform wants to eliminate. They do not fit in the pedagogy we want to create. They are a hurdle. There is no Word able to describe them. We should get rid of them. How shall we evaluate someone who is teaching his/her students to dream? " (Luis Hernández Navarro)
