ABSTRACT
The article presents a comparison between suggested and prescribed courses of study. The importance of teachers and the series of lessons and exercise used as instruments in the education of children is offered. The stages involved in school development and in the development of courses of study are discussed. These courses were being made with the subject of the study as the conditioning factor in school instruction and not the child. The implications in the characterization of suggestive courses of study are also discussed.
