PACHECO, Reinaldo Tadeu Bosco. The educational policy as a spectacle: the construction of the Unified Educational Centers in São Paulo. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.22, pp. 329-343. ISSN 2175-1390.

São Paulo presents itself as a global, peripheral capitalistic city, where contradictions in the distribution of wealth, access to social rights and appropriation of the urban spaces are evident. By analyzing the role of the State in contemporary society, we have sought to access the scope and meaning of the educational policies that were implemented by building the so-called Unified Educational Centers (Centros Educacionais Unificados, CEUs), large complexes that provide formal educational services, as well as access to cultural, sports and leisure. The State, understood as the political structure that composes capital's social metabolic order, is powerless to prevent inequality and forms of social segregation. Therefore, the State's educational policies have been incapable of offering opportunities to build up equality and its new educational architecture is a grand spectacle offered to the population that does not significantly alter the quality of municipal schools.
