Professional upbringing policy for child education: Pedagogy and Superior Normal

This article presents the policy of teacher education for children in the 1990s as it is established by the Pedagogy Courses and Normal Courses, at superior level. Pedagogy has historically been offering teaching education courses at superior level since the 1930s, showing its engaged political and pedagogical project through linking licentiate degree courses to bachelor degree courses. It has guaranteed, therefore, a better and bigger interaction between the general education and the professional. The Normal Courses at superior level, recreated by the law 9394/96, has brought up some discussion due to the idea of separating the teacher education courses at university from shorter teacher education courses that not only understand caring disassociated from educating but also disqualify the staff of professors responsible for the course.
