Abstract

This article discusses the privatization of education based on a broader theoretical study with the purpose of understanding the educational path in Brazil from the development of contemporary capitalism perspective. Therefore, it understands the privatization processes as the development of the current system of capital accumulation particularities, especially regarding its impact and advance on assets such as public education, which had been on the edge of profit calculations. From this perspective, the possibilities and the limits of the concept of accumulation by dispossession, proposed by David Harvey’s, are brought up for the discussion that the privatization of education derives from the ongoing process of capital accumulation. The dispossessing or expropriating character of capitalism in its current stage has the privatization as one of its most important devices, unarguably the most devastating. The connections for such a proposal are considered from the point of view of imperialism, particularly in its neoliberal stage, within the confrontational context of the capital systemic crisis.
