ARAUJO, Marta Maria de. A criança (pobre) em escola católica na cidade paroquial de Jardim do Seridó (Rio Grande do Norte,1943-1951). Educação e Filosofia [online]. 2009, vol.23, n.46, pp.19-36. ISSN 1982-596X.

The poor child elementary scholarship in the 1940's and 1950's, in the Rio Grande do Norte State, requires the Education historiographer to investigate it from the empiric verifications. On the one hand, the scholar education and the social and material assistance conjugate by the federal agencies cooperation, international corporates, state institutions and the Catholic Church. By the other hand, impelled by the grave child social situation, lacking from school, dressed badly, barefoot and underfed, lazily rambling on the parochial cities and in its chapels, in the former Seridó region, Dom José de Medeiros Delgado (1941-1951), the first Caicó's (RN) bishop, implanted in these places an 18 catholic elementary schools network generically denominate Schools for the Poor, oriented by the House of the Poor, in that time a direction organism of the local Catholic Church attendance activities. The investigation centered around the problematic teaching to read and write process has the purpose to reflect about the educative materialism initiated in the Countryside School (of the poor) "Jardim Seridoense", of the parochial city of Jardim do Seridó city (RN) on the period between 1943 and 1951. Strict1y considering the singularities of this catholic institution, we ground ourselves on the scholar culture and culture of the school theoric constructions, developed by the Education historiographer João Barroso (2004), who start from the inter-relations between societary organization and educational institution. Having coincide its installation to the correspondent period of the national elementary scholarship delineate, the Countryside School (of the poor) "Jardim Seridoense" raises, in the likeness of its congener, as a social institution par excellence with the desire that the 7 to 12 years old children take possession of the minimum cultural knowledge and the work habits for the workmanship required at that time.
