This article discusses the relation between utopia and education in the dimension of desirable possibility, affirms the necessity of ethical limits to a perfectionist perspective, identifies the complementarity of utopia and ideology, and highlights the importance of the “new” for establishing an alternative proposal to the current pedagogy. Then, it analyse the novelty of the “tailored learning” within the scope of the educational vision of the New Education, distinguishing the model and its concretizations. Finally, it affirms the need to update this idea of educational justice adjusting it to the current time and the narrative identity of the community in which the school is inserted.
