Basic education teachers' training and valuation: challenging questions for the new national plan for education

After briefly assessing the valuation and training of basic education teachers in Brazil, this paper seeks to contribute to this discussion by addressing some of the challenging questions posed to improve this field, as well as the major struggles that resulted from such proposals. The orientations proposed by the national conferences - CONEB, 2008, and CONAE, 2010 - and the CNE´s document for the new 2011-2020 National Plan for Education are especially considered. We conclude that the new PNE will have to set priorities so that the work of broadening the desired valuation and training can continue. Among such priorities are: correcting paths, introducing new actions and legislative formulations, and opening more opportunities for the collective participation of educators in the orientation of this process.
