VIANNA, José Antonio  and  LOVISOLO, Hugo Rodolfo. The social inclusion through the sport: the perception of the teachers. Rev. bras. educ. fís. esporte (Impr.) [online]. 2011, vol.25, n.2, pp.285-296. ISSN 1807-5509.

The present study aimed to investigate the perception of the physical education teachers who work in social insertion projects through the sport in popular communities of the city of Rio de Janeiro on their students and the institutional intervention. The participants were 25 professionals of physical education, with age between 27 and 59 years (M = 37.28). The interviewed worked in two slum quarters of the City of Rio de Janeiro. The teachers answered a half-structuralized interview involving questions related to their experiences, evaluations and expectations of the respondents on the profile economic partner, the perception of the benefits or damages of the sport in their personal and professional formation, the evaluation of the potentialities and limitations of the students and the project and its beliefs about the impact of the intervention through the sport on the formation of the children and young The data revealed the following evidences: a) the teachers are not able in their students the potential to grow through the sport; b) they do not believe in the sport as a way of personal and professional formation; c) they do not believe that the material and infra-structural conditions are sufficient for the students formation; d) they do not perceive competence in themselves to contribute to the students formation; e) they are not compromised with the students formation process. These indicatives deserve to be better investigated because the result seems to need instrumental resources of the participant students in Social Inclusion Projects so they can have conditions to make greater investments at the sportive formation.
