GERALDI, Corinta Maria Grisolia  e  GERALDI, João Wanderley. The domestication of educational agents: is there light at the end of the tunnel. Rev. Inter Ação [online]. 2012, vol.37, n.1, pp.37-50. ISSN 0101-7136.

This study takes up the question of the triadic relationship underlying the educational profession: students, teachers and knowledge, showing how this has defined different "identities" for the teacher throughout history. In recent decades especially, national curriculum policies, national assessments and the program for acquiring textbooks or even educational packages have resulted in the domestication of educational agents who let their teaching be guided by the demands imposed by the system as a whole, leading to an almost total loss of their autonomy. The light at the end of the tunnel comes precisely from the political spaces which inspired this same domestication: the North-American model which, having failed, decides to build a greater autonomy in educational and pedagogical processes. This process is exemplified using the teaching of language as a basis.
