The interpretation that is given of the term autonomy stems from a moral consideration based on the distinction between autonomy and heteronomy. It supports the argument that education is the process of supporting the educational subject in the refinement of his or her conscience. This process ends with the internalization of the moral law, and therefore the achievement of independence, namely the conclusion of the educational task by those who have helped and supported the growth path.
