KUENZER, Acacia Zeneida. High school teacher training: old problems, new challenges. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2011, vol.32, n.116, pp.667-688. ISSN 0101-7330.

ABSTRACT This paper focuses high school teacher training. It assumes that, since it is a strategy to reproduce capital, teacher training cannot be separated from the sphere of production. Thus, different, unequal proposals try to meet the different needs of training for work. The autonomy of the pedagogical proposals is thus reduced. Based on this assumption, the text shows that capitalism primarily prepares teachers in the framework of social and productive relationships, and secondarily through initial and continuing training courses. It then analyzes the data on initial training and teacher profiles and confront them to the policies, directives and proposals of the National Education Plan for 2011-2020.

Keywords : Teacher training; High school teaching; Teaching work in capitalism.
