The Sociology of Education in Brazil Today


The field of sociology of education in Brazil is marked by a deep institutional fragmentation, being developed both in the Postgraduate Programs in Social Sciences/Sociology and in Education. With the expansion of higher education and other transformations in education systems, Sociology of Education has expanded and gained space in the research agenda of Brazilian sociology. In this article we analyze its development in a recent period, considering the research areas of the postgraduate programs in sociology, as well as its academic production in journals in the last four years. We observed the solidification of education as an area of research in the field of Brazilian sociology, as well as a growing interest in research involving primary and secondary education.
