With this essay we intend to contribute to the discussion on the subject of educational anthropology from the point of view of a deep cultural tradition such as Mexican ethnology, through the analysis of representations, ideas and beliefs of educational, their institutionalized practices, production of cultural sense reproduced and built in the daily life of two elementary schools of great tradition located south of the Mexican Valley, as well as its condensation in mythical narratives, ceremonies and rituals. The results are supported on the axis of Weltanschauung and field work, and show us the constitution of individuals and the way in which they restore diverse contents and symbolic nuclei within educational institutions, as well as in their specific spatial-temporal dimensions.
Keywords : Weltanschauung; school subjects; mythical narratives; rituals.
