Nobody doubts the importance of education in the configuration of any society, advanced or not, to guarantee its continuity over time. It is an aspect that obviously conditions its structure and determines its evolution. The quantity, quality and type of education is one of the crucial decisions, especially in the medium and long term, that public managers, with competencies in the matter, must make in order to improve society as a whole. In the democratic constitutions of advanced societies, general principles that affect education are included, for example, in the case of Spain, the right to education, freedom of education, university autonomy, free and compulsory basic education are included, to name a few, as well as many others of equal importance.
