A significant increase in the prescription of psychiatric medication for all kinds of daily suffering is observed, and children have not been prevented from this treatment. Schools, on their turn, have intensively appealed to the doctor’s knowledge to 'correct' the problems their students present. This briefly described practice is sustained by an ongoing well succeeded biologization of our human condition, that is, it seems that the time has come for man to experience the creator myth, supported by the biochemical and genetic control of our organisms. As an effect of this biologization, the subject is silenced for the benefit of the enlargement of the room his or her body occupies. A discussion on the impact of this logic of treatment practiced in schools is developed focusing on a crucial question: would bio-chemistry answer the question why a child learns or not, would medicine play a main role in the child learning process, would a teacher 'have nothing to do with it' in the two senses the expression suggests: a process of irresponsibility and a status of impotence?
