Educational Democracy in Graduate Education: Public Policies and Affirmative Action
Vasconcelos Medeiros, Hugo Augusto; Mello Neto, Ruy de Deus e; Mendes Catani, Afrânio
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v15 n1 p252-274 Mar 2017
This paper is a discussion on the possibilities of educational democracy in Brazilian Graduate Education, with a focus on the current Graduate Education Field regulations and the recent affirmative actions and public policies of access. We analyzed laws, decrees, government plans and selections edicts, through categories derived from historical materialism and praxeological sociology. Hence, this is a qualitative and critical research paper that aims at pointing paths to overcome the conflicts between the interests of different social groups by defending the need and urgency of an overall discussion and structural change.
