IMEN, Pablo. Pedagogy and emancipations in Bolivarian Venezuela: education policies for the 20TH century socialism. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2011, vol.32, n.115, pp. 393-410. ISSN 0101-7330. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-73302011000200009.
This paper analyzes the social, political and educational development process in Venezuela. From a historical perspective, it describes the main lines of the education policies of the Bolivarian Socialism through the assumptions, values, devices, tools and guidance provided by the current government. It then analyzes how the construction of this emancipatory pedagogical model has evolved and the tensions, contradictions and obstacles it has to overcome. It finally proposes theoretical and practical reflections on the analyzed process.
