The public policies and the right to education: national program of access to education technical and employment versus national education plan

Marcelo Lima Zilka Sulamita Teixeira de Aguilar Pacheco About the authors


Based on bibliographical and documentary analysis, we seek intend issues that pervade the National Education Plan (PNE) and the National Program for Access to Technical Education and Employment (PRONATEC) relating its origin, design and goals. The PNE, even unconsolidated, reveals itself as a state policy, allowing the structuring of the right to education by proposing to overcome educational inequalities, promoting educational quality and strengthening education funding. On the other hand, PRONATEC emerges without the participation of the wider society and is responsible for raising the number of enrollments in vocational education, revealing, however, a private character bias of government policy, prioritizing, via exchange training, predominantly short courses.
