PERBONI, Fabio  y  OLIVEIRA, Regina Tereza Cestari de. Hybridity in school management: perceptions of school principals in the city of Dourados (Mato Grosso do Sul state). Rev. Educ. Questão [online]. 2021, vol.59, n.59, e-22747.  Epub 18-Abr-2022. ISSN 1981-1802.

The article presents results of research that analyzes the perceptions of school principals about school management, choosing as focus of analysis the public schools of the city of Dourados – Mato Grosso do Sul, through interviews, anchored in a qualitative approach. The research undertaken here is based on the observation that at least three sources of influence coexist in the work of school principals. These are identified from the theoretical reference that subsidized the investigation: a) the patrimonialism from which derive clientelist practices in the management of public affairs; b) the consolidated democratic management as a constitutional principle of public education, and; c) the New Public Management that presents itself in the discursive field as a new standard of efficiency to be adopted in all areas of administration. We realize that there is an amalgamation of the three sources of influence, in the principals' perceptions about school management. The article locates the presence of clientelist concepts and practices historically present in school institutions in coexistence with elements of democratic management and the New Public Management. The perceptions identified reflect a hybridism of conceptions, receiving disparate influences from these three sources, even though a rejection of patrimonialism is perceptible.
