SILVA, Marcelo Moraes e and CAPRARO, André Mendes. The context of foundation school of Physical Education and Sport of Paraná: educating bodys to an urban life. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.3, pp. 623-636. ISSN 0101-3289. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32892011000300007.
The present article aims to analyze the socio-political context that favored the foundation of an institution that specifically intended to form professionals in the area of Physical Education: the School of Physical Education and Sports of Paraná. Established in Curitiba during the year of 1942, the School was fruit of an ample political scenery, in which the State, filled for eugenic/hygienic ideals, begins to worry more about the formal education. As a consequence, new physical and moral behaviors had been incorporated through the practices presented in the school's curriculum. Even with its singularities, the School of Physical Education and Sports of Paraná was an active part of this process.
