This paper, which is part of a broader research, reflects on the schooling process during childhood, based on two journals intended to teachers' education. Written by groups articulated to educational policies, both circulated on public teaching networks in São Paulo (Brazil) and Bogotá (Colombia), between 1932 and 1939.The two questions that underpin this text are: what are the political purposes of training teachers to professorship? What is the relation between the scientific methods used in Psychology and Pedagogy? Finally, it advances the hypothesis of a possible relation between pedagogical and authoritarian political projects acting in the set of cognitive, psychological, cultural and institutional forces.
