MELO, Savana Diniz Gomes  and  DUARTE, Adriana. High school policies in Brazil: perspectives for the universalization. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2011, vol.31, n.84, pp.231-251. ISSN 0101-3262.

This paper analyses the inflections of the high school policies in Brazil, from 2007 onwards. It questions the context in which they occurred and the contradictions present in the process. It searches to identify the main changes, the discourses that supported them and the measures and governmental programs that followed them. It depicts and analyses these changes and their implications in the states, focusing on Minas Gerais. Based on the gathered arguments, it stresses a few considerations and tendencies in the path traced by the current policies concerning the finalities and the universalization of this stage of the country's basic education.

Keywords : Policies for high school; Finality; Universalization.
