BASSI, Adélia Carolina  e  MORAIS, Christianni Cardoso. “dressing like an angel”: morality and educational practices in são joão del-rei (1930-1946). Educ. rev. [online]. 2017, vol.33, e162965.  Epub 21-Set-2017. ISSN 0102-4698.

In this paper, we analyze the morality based on representations and practices carried out in an elementary school in São João del-Rei (Minas Gerais, Brazil), the “João dos Santos”. Under the theoretical and methodological point of view, we use the “scales of games” that allow the seizure of various dimensions, from national to regional, local to the individual. A documentary research was carried out in several sources such as legislation, periodical press, school test minutes, journal published by teachers and students, photographs, report cards, copybook and interviews with a former student. In the analyzed period, from 1930 to 1946, there was an increase of access to the elementary school in Brazil and intense legislative activity to regulate religious education. We have concluded that, even though religious education is not compulsory content in public schools, religious culture was widespread in school activities, whether copybook classes, at parties or in periodical published by teachers and students. Even “Religion” class was added by a teacher in the report card consisting of part of the assessment. Such evidences reveal the lack of synchronicity between legal requirements and school practices.
