Abstract

In this article, we address the access of the elderly population to formal Education in Brazil, a reflection of great importance, since it is still quite significant the portion of this population that has been deprived of the symbolic good that education constitutes. This is a qualitative approach research, with documentary and bibliographic data and information collection. The results obtained indicate that, with the increase in life expectancy in the country, grows the need for permanent and present educational policies and programs throughout the national territory, which address the needs and singularities of the elderly.
