STREMEL, Silvana  y  MAINARDES, Jefferson. A organização da escolaridade em ciclos: aspectos de sua emergência, desenvolvimento e discussões atuais. Acta Scientiarum. Education [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.02, pp.227-238. ISSN 2178-5201.

This paper presents historical aspects of the organization of schooling in cycles in Brazil along with an overview of the current state of this policy. As shown by Condorcet’s report (1792), there have been attempts towards flexible school duration since the emergence of modern school, and that such flexibility was necessary due to economic and social class issues. This paper indicates that this flexibility is still necessary, because problems related to social inequality and exclusion have not yet been overcome. Furthermore, it indicates that the validity or efficiency of that policy is always under discussion, since the results and impact vary according to the context, especially concerning the economic, social, infrastructural and pedagogical conditions of the teaching networks that adopt it, as well as on account of the characteristics of pedagogical projects that have been implemented, intending to organize the schooling in cycles.

Palabras clave : Cycle-Based School; Historical Trajectory; Educational Policy.
