  Abstract: Since the '70s, two concepts from the business world have been adopted by education: innovation and competence. This talk will show how some physics educators are resisting or refusing to adopt the model of competence. This work is based on previous research made in Tabasco, Mexico, and directed to teachers in Law, History, and Sociology. We interviewed physics teachers, both college and high school, to get their opinion and experience with the model of competence. We present evidence about rejecting the model based on negative aspects of using the practice. However, some teachers found positive aspects of the model they can use in their daily practice, which we present in the talk.
