Curriculum policies for High School in contemporary Brazil: What does the protecting school teach students?


This paper aims to wonder how social protection logic as a political technology has worked as a criterion guiding processes of selecting school knowledge in the analysed context. Based on a set of empirical recurrence due to six episodic interviews, we have noted that integrated interdisciplinary projects with themes of prevention against social risks are the major emphasis for contemporary pedagogies for protection. Their pedagogical practices select and put into play particular forms of school knowledge tending to individualise collective responsibilities, as well as reframe questions of social damage, danger and risks in the contemporary world.
