High school now is for life: among what's intended, what's said and what's done

Acacia Zeneida Kuenzer About the author

This paper intends to uncover the ideology of official speech affirming that the new High School now is for life, substituting the old model where the general education was integrated with a professional learning in the same net, is understood as "not life". The author will show that, besides the official speech, the new proposal serves just to the social elite. The author has a different proposal that gives access to everyone in all knowledge areas showing the actual possibility of the high school as an instrument of social equality.
