Power devices can institute and determine the types of subjects and prescribe the functionality they must have for economic, political and religious purposes. Therefore, this research aimed to explain the discourses that built the imaginary around the subjectivity of teachers and students in the history of the Colombian educational system to reconfigure their pedagogical actions. In this sense, a qualitative inquiry with a hermeneutic design was chosen. Among the main results of the research, it is highlighted that since the genesis of the Colombian educational system, pedagogy has been used to legitimize the instrumentalization of the work of teachers and used instruction to control the subjectivity and the body of students.
