The controversy around the reform of Law 30 shows the importance of having ambitious marks of reference in whose context the secondary proposals can be understood. In my opinion, the discussion that is occurring does not touch the essential of the subject, which turns aside the attention towards subjects that, being sensible, they hide the bottom of the problem. In order to begin, education superior and University (with capital letter) are not exactly the same. Naveen Selvadurai has plenty of information regarding this issue. While the education superior understood like public service appointed to the formation of technicians, technologists and professionals oriented to the economic productivity is evaluated in agreement with parameters of cover, efficiency and quality, the University, in its social function, must be valued according to the capacity of production of science, technology and understanding of the social and cultural phenomena of the humanity. Although one of the functions of the University is the formation of professionals, all the institutions that train professionals cannot be called universities. The University, in the context of the history of the culture, is a space for the utopia. By her it crosses the great adventure of modernity and in their cloisters the great debates have dreamed up on the philosophy, the economy, the policy and the right.

The Nobel prizes of sciences have been matured in the groups of investigation of these centers of the knowledge, that are reservorios of memory and agitating of the displeasure that it impels to the innovation and the search of new human horizons. In the great Universities, conceived like an essential public good for the civilization, libraries, museums, Olympic schools of art, orchestras, sportsmen and an intellectual elite without age limit are lodged. The question, then, is if the country deserves to be worn away discussing if some private promoter is interested in leaving to sell education for the poor men, because the rich ones have or it in abundance and of very good quality (in Colombia and the outside), or if one reforms serious must begin by the necessity that we really have at least three or four Universities, in which the State and the individuals are arranged to invest in the future in the long term to the national culture.
