FERREIRA JR., Amarilio  and  BITTAR, Marisa. Technical education and ideology in the dictatorship. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.76, pp.333-355. ISSN 0101-3262.

This article studies the technical ideology underlying the Brazilian education during the military dictatorship (1964-1985). We assume that the educational reforms implemented after 1964 were marked both by the Brazilian capitalist model of authoritarian modernization and by the economic theory of "human capital". Generated by the "technical efficiency" applied to the management of State and its organizations, the conceit whose theme was "Brazil as a Great Power" also had consequences on the educational polices implemented after the 1968 and 1971 university reforms. Thus, the national educational system created by the dictatorship reforms was marked by the technocrat ideology that defended an authoritarian, productivist pedagogic conception of the relation between education and the world of work.

Keywords : History of education; Technical education; Dictatorship.
