EXPANSION AND COMMERCIALIZATION OF PEDAGOGY COURSES: LARGE-SCALE DEFORMATION OF FUTURE PEDAGOGUES
Keywords:pedagogy course, higher education policies, expansion of higher education, privatization
This article analyzes the characteristics of the expansion of pedagogy courses in Brazil, especially in the last decade, based on data from the Higher Education Census and the National Student Performance Exam (Enade), from Inep, updated until 2021 The process of expanding the pedagogy course follows two trends. At a macro level, there is a process of growth of private higher education, especially concentrated in a few financialized groups. At the micro level, there is a set of legal inductions for teacher training to take place at a higher level and the consolidation of the pedagogy course as a privileged place for teacher training for early childhood education and early years of elementary school as opposed to other courses like the upper normal course. The results presented by this work point to what has been called "large-scale deformation", considering the increasing concentration of enrollments in private universities focused almost exclusively on teaching (with little articulation with research and extension), in distance courses, with high dropout rates and low Enade scores compared to federal and state public institutions.
