BARREIRA, Luiz Carlos. Popular education in Portugal: Teachers in defense of Higher Primary Schools (Porto, 1925). Educação. UNISINOS [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.2, pp.155-165. ISSN 2177-6210.

This paper presents results of a historical research on organized action of teachers at the very end of the First Portuguese Republic. Guided by Norberto Bobbio's reflections on intellectuals and power, this paper highlights the work of teachers who starred in significant changes in the history of the curriculum of higher primary schools existing then in Portugal. Organized around a guild - Guild of Teachers of Higher Primary Schools, whose official organ was entitled O Ensino do Povo -, such teachers promoted a campaign in defense of the schools where they were teaching, in response to criticism and threats of extinction that hovered over them. Once completed the investigation, it was possible to say that the organized work of these teachers allowed for the promotion of education reforms, so to speak, "from bottom to up".
