View article (In Portuguese)


Utilizing the 'Ley Orgánica de Calidad de la Educación' from Spain, the author analyzes how education has been a dangerous example of the neo-liberal attacks to public goods. The author also denounces how neo-liberal educational policies, anchored in values as competition, continue to intentionally avoid a broad democratic debate about content and assessment in education, perpetuating a pedagogical practice that multiplies social injustice. Finally, the author problematizes the indicators' mania as one of the main weapons of the neo-liberal project in its struggle to maintaining schools divorced from a truly democratic goal.
