Eledín Parraguez, professor and author of the book Three years to live, is the person that & # 39; t the character Pedro Machuca was mainly inspired, from movie Machuca.
Parraguez went to Saint George's College between 1971 and 1973. He made his secondary education until the Military Strike on September 11 when he went to San Ignacio school.
He lived in a city by the river in Las Condes, making him very far away from his colleague's in Saint George's. "The experience is healing and pleasant," he said in an interview 360 °. "There were always problems because this has psychological effects"He said.

Parraguez cries out that "there are many prejudices to break, prejudices like the arm are not good, they don't care, they're not so intelligent." Even then, he remains positive: "I was able to go to university and later I got a doctorate and I could study abroad. This does not mean that I am worse or less intelligent, the only thing that means is that I had the chance"
Is that system more realistic?
As asked about the project Machuca Law delayed by the opposition, it tries to set up a quota of more vulnerable students at institutions, Parraguez said, "It's not a solution, it's the solution that all schools are good, public education and private training, and the state must ensure that schools are good at public education, so we do not need the Machuca law. "
"It may be useful in some cases, but it would also impress this conflict in people, especially in adolescents. Be this discrimination"He said.
