Andalusian Educational Policy Framework
The Andalusian Regional Government launched the Bill of Measures to Propel the “Knowledge Society” in Andalusia (“Decreto de medidas de impulso a la sociedad del conocimiento en Andalucía” ) on the 18th of March 2003, a singular and groundbreaking law in terms of its contents, scope and the philosophy which inspired it. This bill has as its main goal the establishment of the measures needed to contribute to Andalusia’s full incorporation into the “Knowledge society”, and consequently, to achieve a higher standard of living, a better territorial balance and a more competitive and widened productive sector in Andalusia.
To fulfil this basic aim, the bill establishes a series of concrete, diversiﬁed and scheduled measures. In the educational sector the objectives are the following:
- First objective: To guarantee all citizens of Andalusia access to ICT, regardless of their place of residence and social status.
- Second objective: To facilitate access to the information and services provided by the regional administration through the Internet.
- Third objective: To adapt basic public services, particularly education and health related ones, to the demands and potential of the “knowledge society”.
Incorporation into the “knowledge society” is as important as the way in which it takes place. The spread of free software, by means of Guadalinex distribution, insures incorporation into the “knowledge society” in a framework of marked solidarity, cooperation, equality, and freedom.
The Andalusian ICT schools Network is the result of a work that began in 1985 with the Alhambra Plan. The graphic shows the different projects that Andalusian Government made in Andalusia until Andared Project started. The Andalusian Networking belongs to Andared project.

“The city is a fact in nature, like a cave, a run of mackerel or an ant-heap. But it is also a conscious work of art, and it holds within its communal framework many simpler and more personal forms of art. Mind takes form in the city; and in turn, urban forms condition mind.”
—Lewis Mumford (18951990)

“Your organization is not a praying institution. Its a fighting institution. Its an educational institution right along industrial lines. Pray for the dead and fight like hell for the living!”
