KATZ, Elvis Patrik  y  MUTZ, Andresa Silva da Costa. School without party - production of senses and disputes around the function of public school in Brazil. ETD [online]. 2017, vol.19, suppl., pp.184-205. ISSN 1676-2592.

The social disputes about education have been happening frequently in contemporaneity and they are putting academic institutions in the central point of discussions. The Medida Provisória (MP) of Ensino Médio, the Proposta de Emenda Constitucional (PEC) of public outgoings, the proposals of the Escola Sem Partido, and the many movements of occupations by students in schools are evident manifestations of the importance that our society gives to education. In this context, the present article discusses the function of basic education in Brazil, planning the paradox: how is it possible that, in a scenery of great depreciation of public education - in which discourses point to the existence of a real "crisis" of education - there are many articulations and confrontations that aim the control of this institution? In other words, how can Brazilian public school be at the same time presented as guilty for innumerable problems and, strangely, appear as a potential space where all the evils of society will be solved? Therefore, we base our analysis on the speeches given by Escola Sem Partido, through its official website, and on some artifacts of our culture, with the help of contributions from the area of Cultural Studies and ideas of Michel Foucault. Our hypothesis is that this movement goes between the radical criticisms of school and, when fighting for a space of exercise of power, it reaffirms the potency of this institution nowadays.
