Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This research is about the right to education in Brazil that is compulsory during school age. Despite the federal law obligating children from 4 to 17 years old to enroll at school, some families are trying to educate them at home which has contributed to the emergence of proposals in favor of changes in the law. The h main goal of the research is to study the context of homeschooling in other countries and to analyze its possible implementation in Brazil. The specific goal is to understand the role of the State in the society educational process and its denial in favor of the families’ freedom of choice, and to analyze the tension between the right of the child and the right of the parents as a central issue in contemporary educational policy debates. These studies are supported by a broader context of educational reforms and the theoretical concept also involves the discussion about the right to quality of education building for all. The methodology used is the qualitative approach with bibliographic research and analysis of legal documents. Homeschooling in Brazil has been a field of discussion and the debate centres on the tension of the right to education as belonging to the public or private sphere. The research has shown that if homeschooling regulation is legally approved in Brazil, we may return to a historical moment when the rich were educated at home while good institutional education would be delegated to the poor.
