This paper reviews the Brazilian military dictatorship's educational policies and accomplishments. It particularly stresses aspects that are still present in the current Brazilian education. Those include: the link between public education and market interests and needs, brought forth by the University reform, especially the compulsory and universal implementation of professionalizing teaching; the favoritism of private teaching, which mainly took place through authorizations and accreditations granted by the Conselho Federal de Educação (Federal Education Council); the teaching structure resulting from the implementation of organizational mechanisms that is still fully in force; a successful post-graduation model established following the American organizational structure and the European university experience.
