High school: shortcut to the past

Luiz Antônio Cunha About the author


This article analyzes the reform of higher education proposed by the Provisional Measure 746/2016, from the perspective of previous policies, such as those expressed in the Law 5692/1971 and Decree 2208/1997: the merger of curricular branches (by law) or their distinction (by decree) had as function the containment of the demand of higher education. In the case of the provisional measure, this function also stems from a particular crisis in private higher education institutions, which has led to an unprecedented corporate centralization and concentration of capital.
