OLIVEIRA, Nicole Nöthen de. The occupied education: a psychopolitical essay on the occupations of secondary schools in São Paulo. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.45, pp. 301-316. ISSN 2175-1390.

This essay seeks to offer a reflection on the secondary school movement of occupations of state schools in São Paulo, from the perspective of Political Psychology. Considering the strongly interdisciplinary feature of this field of knowledge, we will bring to discussion authors of several areas that can contribute to a psycho-political analysis of the movement in question, shedding light on the issues that there have emerged, such as the relationship between democracy and education, between power and resistance and between social movements andpublic policies. The analysis points out, in our view, to the importance of reflection on the relationship between individual and state, political participation and the need for a school environment open to democratic processes, with the development of political consciousness and citizenship, with the aim of critical-reflexive education of students about the society in which they live in, as seen in occupations.

Keywords : Democracy; Education; Power-Resistence Relationships; Social Movements; Public Policies.
