This paper presents some thoughts on governance practices in the Brazilian liberal education and the organization of the school system from the perspective of governmentality in Foucault, during the twentieth century. Thus, the theoretical framework used to undertake the analysis includes some authors / the educational area, as well as attempts to link them to the discussion with some concepts developed by Foucault on liberalism, governmentality, power-knowledge, subjectivity and education. Education, in this perspective becomes one governamentality apparatus that builds speeches and visibilities that subjectify subjects in different ways. In Brazil, the liberal education combined with the desire to modernize bodies and another company, engendering forms of government to operate on the social spheres, cultural, political, ethical and economically in the lives and bodies.

Keywords : Governmentality; Foucault; Education; Brazil.
