DURAES, Sarah Jane Alves. Disciplinary processes and teacher work in the primary school of Minas Gerais/Brazil (1869-1890). Educ. rev. [online]. 2009, vol.25, n.2, pp. 15-42. ISSN 0102-4698. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-46982009000200002.
This article analyzes 23 disciplinary processes and its results which were used as disciplinary actions of the teacher´s work by the Government of Minas Gerais/Brazil in the primary school during the second half of the nineteenth century. Although some of those strategies were just attempts, the Government proposed many laws intending to control the teacher´s work in the whole province/state. The Director Council members had the function of investigating and punishing the male and female teachers who had done some labors that were different from the teacher´s work, they had an unsatisfactory performance of teaching and had some moral behaviors that were not suitable for the office. Through a disciplinary process, the Government had the criterion and large legislation that punished the teacher with a temporary stoppage without payment, with a cast out from his/her space or with the definitive loss of his/her permission to teach in primary schools.
