The panel will discuss the role of education when approaching the historical and growing social inequality in Brazil. We aim to promote a debate that will explore not only issues related to the instrumental, utilitarian, and capitalist function of education, but also the humanistic and critical values that are needed to transform realities in which social inequality prevails. In this matter, we will debate an education that goes beyond the process of qualifying individuals for a job (in terms of learning) and beyond the production of knowledge with the only purpose of supplying economic development (in terms of research). We believe that this debate is even more relevant in the current moment of the pandemic, in which the consequences of social inequality are deepened.
Panel composed of Rosana Fernandes, Denise Carreira, and Fernando Haddad. Mediation by Thamara de Paulo, MA in Education and International Development.
