OLIVEIRA, Dalila Andrade. Regulation of educational policies in Latin America and its consequences for teaching workers. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2005, vol.26, n.92, pp. 753-775. ISSN 0101-7330. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-73302005000300003.
The present paper discusses the current regulation of the educational policies in Latin America and its consequences for teaching workers. It assumes that a new model of regulation of educational policies has recently emerged as a consequence of the cycle of reforms experienced by many countries since the 1990s. The considerations brought here are the result of a research, more precisely of a document survey and bibliographic revision, on this theme that I developed as part of a post-doctorate scholarship at the Laboratory of Public Policies of the Universidade Estadual do Rio de Janeiro (UERJ). This text tries to characterize the debate on a new regulation of the educational policies in Latin America and its consequences for the teaching workers based on some elements allowing us to know the specificities of this subcontinent, although seeking to interpret such elements in the light of the contribution of authors who have studied the subject in various national contexts.
