Abstract

The teachers’ working conditions and their experiences in the basic public education network were impacted by the educational reforms implemented in the 1990s, with a strong influence of neoliberal policy and globalization. As a result of this influence, there was a precariousness of public education and implementation of school management in basic education. The repercussions of this educational scenario, characterized by terrible work achievement conditions and devaluation of the teaching career, it has been affecting the teacher's life story and caused illnesses in this working class. In this context, the aim of this study was understanding the processes involved in the illness of public-school teachers in the city of Montes Claros-MG, based on experiences and working conditions. This is a qualitative research, based on Symbolic Interactionism, carried out through the Grounded Theory, in a social constructionist perspective. Twelve teachers of basic education in state schools were interviewed. The data, in the analysis process, produced encodings that resulted in seven axial categories, which seek to elucidate the theoretical assumptions of this investigation. The results of this study showed that the illness of basic education teachers involves multifactorial processes and causes.
