This paper examines narratives and questions interconnected with the phenomena of globalization and neo-liberalism relating these with the implications of an education based in standardization. The findings and analysis are mainly based in the reality of the border between Ciudad Juárez and El Paso, Texas. This study focus on the culture of surveillance and its anti-ethical influence, inherited from a context of hegemony of the capitalist system, patriarchy, and whiteness. Finally, this paper proposes a curriculum with integrated education practices, which contextualize the learning experiences of the students in their daily life. This perspective offers an alternative to the position that generates oppressive practices and drafts an educational program that foments equality of opportunities and a democratic participation that leads to social justice.
