In Todorov’s words, we are living a fight between the neoliberalism and democracy. In front of that conflict that is undermining the formal democracy pillars, the paper wants to present, in an exploratory way, first notes on what could be a democratic commoning school. To do so, I connect with the trend of thought that, from Dewey, have been emphasising the necessity that schools educate in, for and about democracy. Today, the social need of democratic schools is stronger than ever and, related to this, the main goal of the paper is the proposal to do it through the communing practices. Precisely, Bollier (2014) and Laval and Dardot (2015) proposed to shift “common” from an adjective (the common goods) to a verb: commoning. The article explores, from the analytical model of Michel Foucault (knowledge, power and subjectivity), what could be a democratic school based on communing practices. Moreover, its relation to what a school (not) should be (Truth); how (not) should be governed (government); and what kind of identity it (not) should produce (subjectivity). With this proposal of the democratic commoning schools, I would like to open up new ways to build up education spaces that transform knowledge, power relations and identities from the common good perspective ​
