Lecture: “The effects of accountability policies on teaching work in Brazil”

March 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

About the presentation: The presentation will address the emergence and consolidation of results-based regulation modes in Brazil, focusing on their manifestations in accountability policies formulated and implemented in several states. The analysis highlights the effects of fragmentation and hybridization in public education policies in a federal country, resulting from the tension between transnational, national, regional, and local regulatory dynamics. With an approach supported by the theory of ‘multi-regulation’ of educational policy, and based on empirical research results on the effects of Performance-Based Assessments (PBA) policies on teaching work in four states in the north-eastern region of the country, the analysis unfolds in three dimensions: (a) the Brazilian incorporation to the transnational circuits of datafication; (b) the mosaic of accountability policies in Brazil, focusing on the effects of interventions by different public powers in the daily work of teachers and school principals; c) the effects on the teachers’ professionalism, especially on aspects related to autonomy and collective work.
