National System of Education: the arrangements in cooperation, partnership and the greed over public funds in basic education

Carlos Augusto Abicalil

The present article aims at clarifying the new forms of dispute over public funds extended to national education, due to an institutional design of the National System of Education being foulated based on the National Education Plan, its guidelines, goals and strategies for the decade. It describes the newly created Intergovernmental management structures, complementary regulations emanating from the National Council of Education and institutional measures of the Ministry of Education in this new context. Highlighting narratives of the very social actors in the so called third sector, it presents their strategies to conform to a normative legal structure that allows direct actions over federal funds from the National Fund for Maintenance and Development of Basic Education and Education Professionals Valorization (Fundeb) and the National Fund for Education Development (FNDE), taking advantage of the possibility of offering municipal public education management consultancy by means of the Arrangements for the Development of Education.
