Two tendencies seem to be an essential part of the public policies in higher education in Venezuela. One is the mass enrolment, the second indoctrinación. The first policy rein-forces the tactics of enrolment, denying the necessary obligations to create spaces for knowledge production. Politicians omits the fact of how each student of higher education requires a series of resources that otherwise debilitates the learning process and in that case the generations that come out of higher education will do with important déficits in their training. A case from a Venezuelan university, the Universidad Nacional Experimental del Yaracuy (UNEY) is taken, to justify the analysis.
