DEUSDARA, Bruno  and  ROCHA, Décio. Voices in struggle in information media discourses and the production of objectivity: on precarization of work in school. DELTA [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.1, pp.121-145. ISSN 0102-4450.

In this paper, we intend to analyze the production of meaning effects regarding the work of professionals of Education in media press, from an enunciative perspective. Our corpus is an article published in a newspaper focusing the bonus system (a pecuniary "reward" for positive results obtained) proposed in the scope of Programa Nova Ecola, instituted in public schools of Rio de Janeiro since 2000. On the basis of the concept of enunciative heterogeneity (Authier-Revuz, 1990; Maingueneau, 1997), we shall highlight the role of reported speech in utterances, with emphasis on the category of "narratized speech" (Genette,1972; Sant'Anna, 2004; Deusdará, 2006). Results show some evidence that narratized speech is the main strategy adopted for reporting utterances emitted by official voices, so as to create a maximal effect of objectivity.

Keywords : discourse analysis; reported speech; news; precarization of work in school.
