NASCIMENTO, CLARICE ANTUNES DO. OF THE GOVERNMENT OF MEN... AND SOULS. Rev. Bras. Educ. [online]. 2018, vol.23, e230014.  Epub Mar 05, 2018. ISSN 1809-449X.

This article includes discussions about a government program that aims the participation of society in government actions and decisions, encouraging voluntary, solidary and collaborative initiatives. More than that, it has the objective of producing proactive and entrepreneur individuals, inserted in a solidary and economic logic that seems to be directed towards the responsibility of the subjects. Based on Foucault’s theories, we discuss the hypothesis that the State assumes the school’s role - the educational one -, considering the use of strategies that act pedagogically on the individuals, producing subjectivities. Besides, we think about the emergence of a coach State, which assumes the role of stimulating people to leverage better results. As Wolk (2008), the coach’s role is empower the others in order to obtain the maximum performance of your skills and abilities.

Keywords : education; Michel Foucault; coach-State; governmentality.
