VIEGAS, Lygia de Sousa e SOUZA, Marilene Proença Rebello de. The continued progression in the state of São Paulo: considerations based on the educators point of view. Psicol. esc. educ. [online]. 2006, vol.10, n.2, pp. 247-262. ISSN 1413-8557.
This study analyzed the Continued Progression in the perspective of the educators in the elementary school. The method used was the production of texts and organization in groups of reflexion aiming to know how the educators understand educational politics, how the progression took place in the classes and which are the dificulties faced in its implantation. The consence between teachers and the official speech is in the necessity of facing the high index of failling and school evasion in the Public system. The divergence between teachers and the governamental policy is,specially, in the manner of how it has been implemented, because there is not enough participation of the teachers in the process. There is a negative conception about the learning skill of the students coming from families with low economic condition as much in the official speech as in the teachers‘ point of view. The distance between the intention of the governamental policy and the reality of its implementation is considered to endanger the democratization and the teaching‘s quality.
