However, many of its claim, already been denounced before by other critical voices at academic realms, also uncover some inconvenient truths concerning the school’s managing and educational quality. Reaching a more broader perspective besides outdated personal questions, within the aim of deconstructing this «historiographical myth», it will allowed to recognize the importance of this campaign on the suppression of the first attempt of schooling Arts at the U. Porto.
