MARQUES, Luciana Rosa. The political pedagocical project and the construction of school autonomy and democracy in the social representations of the school councilors. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2003, vol.24, n.83, pp.577-597. ISSN 0101-7330.

This paper aims at seizing as a political object, the elaboration of the political-pedagogical project, which acquires substance in the locus where it is implemented: school. For this, it turns to the theory of social representations proposed by Moscovici and his followers, who understand that the guidelines of the educational politics are given shape by those who put it into practice. The empirical research was made in the Rede Municipal do Cabo de Santo Agostinho, in the greater Recife, Pernambuco, by collecting information from the members of the School Councils. The social representations of these councilors allowed us to find how the political pedagogical project is understood, as well as its relationship to school autonomy and its function in the democratic relation in the school daily reality.

Keywords : Political pedagogic project; School council; Social representations; Autonomy; Democracy.
