The future has been a strong structuring notion of the development of the school from its origin and until today, we could say that it is an inherent notion to the very idea of school. Modern school was consolidated through an articulation between education and utopia: society would be what school made of it.This notion is reactualized whenever it is argued that some social phenomena arise as a result of insufficient school education from aspects that can range from solidarity and democratic values, to traffic laws and tax education.My interest in this article is to problematize this school / future articulation by dwelling on the ways in which it is currently enunciated in our schools, as well as on the evocation usually made of how that formulation worked in the not too distant past.I am also interested in analyzing whether this is the only way - with a universalist claim - that the school can be linked to the future or whether it is a particular story, and thus one of several possible ways. Finally, we will conclude by proposing some possibilities to recreate that relationship.
