The object of this investigation is to know the contribution of primary education to the progress of modernity in Cantabria (Spain) during the twenties and thirties of the XX century. Different variables have been studied: the previous literacy process and schooling, the introduction and spreading of the new educational model, the educational administration, the characteristics and evolution of state and private school and teaching methods innovation. Documental sources used were different kind of archives: national, local, academical and private ones. The conclusions allow us to say that the contribution of primary education to the modernity of Cantabria materialized in two facts. The first one was the increase of literacy, schooling and people with secondary studies, mainly because of the improvement of public education. The secondo one was the spreading, mainly during the Second Republic period, of modern values that questioned traditional educational policy and social structure. All this contributed to the confrontation with the Catholic Church and conservative ideologies
