OLIVEIRA, Arão Davi; FERREIRA, Valdivina Alves  and  SILVA, Celeida Maria Costa de Souza e. Implications of concomitance in technical education financed by Pronatec in the Mato Grosso do Sul state education network (2012-2015). Ensaio: aval.pol.públ.Educ. [online]. 2019, vol.27, n.103, pp.406-425.  Epub Feb 07, 2019. ISSN 1809-4465.

The National Program for Access to Technical Education and Employment (Pronatec) is a program for financing technical education launched in 2011 under the government of Dilma Rousseff (2011-2016) enacted by Law 12.513/2011. Among its actions is the promotion of the Technical Education Networks in the states. This research study discusses the implications of concomitance in the technical education courses financed by Pronatec in the Mato Grosso do Sul State Education Network (REE / MS), in the period from 2012 to 2015. It is a documentary, bibliographical and empirical research study that uses Gramsci’s concept of “state” (1991) and Harvey’s of “flexible capital accumulation” (1992). Semi-structured interviews were conducted with four managers who participated at the implementation of Pronatec in the REE/MS, during the period studied. The results indicate that in the REE/MS the Pronatec prioritized courses concomitant with or subsequent to standard higher secondary education courses and that resulted in high dropout and failure rates in the studied period.
