The social interactions that occur in the school environment can favor or harm the academic and behavioral development. The objective of this study was to compare teachers' educational practices and infant behaviors of children differentiated by diagnostics indicators of behavior problems (clinical and non-clinical groups to behavior problems), by schooling (preschoolers and schoolchildren) and sex. The sample comprised 283 children and their public schools teachers, that answered questionnaires and semi-structured interview. Statistical analyses were conducted: Student t and Chi-square tests. It was noted that teachers tend to be less skilled and more punitive with boys, schoolchildren and clinical children to behavior problems. Girls and non-clinical children to behavior problems present higher average of social skills and less scores of behavioral problems.
