CUNHA, Luiz Antônio. The legacy of dictatorship for brazilian education. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2014, vol.35, n.127, pp.357-377. ISSN 0101-7330.

Two vectors are the legacy of dictatorship in Brazil: education treated according to the State-capital symbiosis and education treated as an instrument of moral regeneration of the individual and society. State support to capital in the educational field consisted of scholarship programs for low-income students in private primary schools. It has followed the same path in higher education via the Programa Universidade para Todos (University for all Programme), since 2005. Another vector consists in ascribing to education, particularly public education, the means for regenerating individuals and society itself, which have lost the basic values of sociability, especially the moral values of Christianity. This ideology has had on the Escola Superior de Guerra (War College) the source of Moral and Civic Education. Several law proposals intend to resume similar patterns.

Keywords : Dictatorship and education; Public and private education; Education and morality.
