The dynamics of an educational institution is more complex than the addition of the elements that integrate it. Based on the Theory of Complex Systems and Self-Organized Criticality (SOC), I propose to build a metric space of reference for measuring the degree of order (entropy) of the educational system in search for its sustainability. The Academic Sustainability Triangle-Reading Comprehension Module (TRISA-CL): 1. Measures the degree of entropy between quality indices (in reading comprehension as a first module) selected by the user from the scale of an institution or program to the individual level. 2) Expresses graphically the behavior of selected items to evaluate and support educational policies. 3) Allows knowing the degree of order of the system both in quantitative and qualitative terms. 4) Predicts the development of the system over time. 5) Provides support to the design of new strategies for preventing educational imbalance. 6) Supports the development of impact scenarios.
