Contribution of social movements for countryside education: the experience of National Education Program versus Agrarian Reform


Historically, the education of the country people was neglected, restricted to mere projects regarding literacy. From the 90s, there is an articulation of rural social movements for the promotion of education in rural areas. The objective of this work was to analyze how Pronera (National Program of Education in Agrarian Reform) contributes to the effectiveness of the right to Education and to achieve the fundamental objectives of the Republic, established by the 1988 Federal Constitution, also pointing out the importance that social movements had for the creation and maintenance of this program.
