MACHADO, Ilma Ferreira. Rural education and diversity. Perspectiva [online]. 2010, vol.28, n.01, pp.141-156. ISSN 0102-5473.

This text discusses the fact that rural education has been historically neglected by public policy, yet it cannot be denied that it is one of the dimensions of socio-cultural diversity in Brazil. the emergency programs and past compensatory policies developed by foreign agents focused on economic-productive factors and were based on urban standards, indicating the utilitarian and discriminatory treatment given to rural regions. These policies attempt to silence the socio-cultural diversity of rural areas and the creative potential of its subjects. Social movements arose in response to these practices in an attempt to reveal the importance of the role and autonomy of rural subjects in the construction of political-social and pedagogical projects that contemplate the specificities of this context, allowing the complete articulation of local and universal knowledge while simultaneously seeking to overcome rural-urban polarization.

Keywords : Rural Education; Cultural Diversity.
