QUARESMA, Adilene Gonçalves. Education, social management and local development: some thoughts on the experience of MST in the fight for school social management. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2017, vol.12, n.1, pp. 177-192. ISSN 1809-8908.

Social management and local development are categories whose senses and purposes can be "in favor of the social" or "against social". These categories constitute analytical perspectives of different realities and perspectives of different societal projects. Based on this assumption, the text presents the analysis of the relationship between local education-development and school management in the social movement of the experience of the Landless Rural Workers (MST) in Minas Gerais. The text results of research conducted in Doctorate from 2009 to 2011; it comprised a qualitative approach with interviews, questionnaires and observation activities in the schools surveyed and in settlement in general. The analysis leads to the conclusion that within the implementation of its education project, there is a dispute between a conception of social management of the school and the education advocated by the MST and the management model of the state, which is configured as a challenge to be overcome by the Movement.

Keywords : education; local development; social management; MST.
