FETZNER, Andréa Rosana  and  SOUZA, Maria Elena Viana. Concepts of school knowledge: potentialities of the Institutional Program of Teaching Initiation Scholarships. Educ. Pesqui. [online]. 2012, vol.38, n.3, pp.683-694.  Epub July 31, 2012. ISSN 1517-9702.

Considering the possibilities resulting from the Institutional Program of Teaching Initiation Scholarships (PIBID), this paper discusses the concepts of school knowledge and the challenges of project to transform basic schooling into an institution that takes intercultural perspectives in relation to school knowledge. Thus, it is understood that it is still a challenge for many elementary/intermediate schools, to acknowledge and work with knowledge that are significant for the people who attend it. Funded by CAPES, in the context of PIBID, this paper presents the early results of a study on the conceptions of school knowledge that intertwine the teaching practice of teachers from public schools and scholarship holders for teaching initiation involved in the project. The research was developed through the study of intercultural aspects and its contemporary challenges, the follow-up of the work done in the schools and the use of questionnaires to students who had a teaching initiation scholarship granted by the Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO), which implemented a project by means of the above mentioned program. We found, until now, that the concept of school knowledge has oscillated between conservative and emancipatory perspectives, and the latter are understood as those which, sharing the notion of well-living, attempt to integrate themselves into the needs of the communities and to share principles involving relationality, the correspondence and the complementarity, as emphasized by Catherine Walsh.
