REGULATION BY RESULTS AND RECONFIGURATIONS IN INSTITUTIONAL ARRANGEMENTS AIMED AT THE DEMOCRATIC SCHOOL GOVERNANCE
Keywords:public education, regulation by results, democratic management, participation and social control, accountability
This paper aims to analyze, in the context of a growing implementation of accountability measures in basic education identified with policies of regulation by results, possible reconfigurations of institutional arrangements intended to account for the democratic school governance, in terms of participation and social control. Based on documentary research, the investigation process, with incidence in two Brazilian capitals – Fortaleza (CE) and Palmas (TO) –, comprised the survey and examination of target documents, systematization of guidelines and conditions for the democratic governance of public basic education and measures in line with policies of regulation by results, carried out since the 2000’s. If, on the one hand, it concludes that the set of changes processed in each capital allows us to gather indications of some favoring of the institutional conditions of participation and social control, on the other hand, it highlights that the suggested potential of these changes seems to lose expressiveness in the face of a political-institutional framework that emphasizes measures identified with policies of regulation by results.
