Maria Teresa Leitão de Melo About the author

The article analyses the formation of basic education teachers highlighting two events that took place last decade: The World Conference of Education for All and The Directive and Basis Law of the National Education. It evaluates the unrolling coming from these events already mentioned and their influence in the official programs of formation, criticising the tonic in the improvement in restricted service to some areas, having a fragmented content, hastening, with no repercussion in the ambit of valorization policies of teachership, categorizing it as the right of the teacher. It originates the challenge to build up the profile and the identity of the education professional, considering them the actors that act on school and have a link with educative work: teachers and workers of education, having the right to an including formation and with social quality.
