PASTORE, Marina Di Napoli  y  BARROS, Denise Dias. Experiences and perceptions about education in Mozambique: Ethnographic insights in a primary school in the suburb of Matola A. Cadernos de Estudos Africanos [online]. 2018, n.35, pp.149-169. ISSN 1645-3794.

Education in Mozambique carries, even in the present day, the marks of a historical period and the numerous economic and socio-political issues linked to the processes of European colonization. From ethnographic work in elementary school (1st to 7th classes) in the neighborhood of Matola A in Mozambique, it was possible to establish ties with the children, teachers and the community, experiencing the daily school life of five children between 7 and 13 years of age. Through the production of reports and the experience over the five months when the research occurred, the authors bring a political panorama of the situation of the country and of the education system, and practices reflecting the interpretation of children, parents and teachers about formative processes. It discusses the possibility of expansion of knowledge involved in the teaching-learning process, encompassing multiple perspectives and exchanges of knowledge so that the school, as a place of childhood, can be a place where knowledge, cultures and practices are aggregated and shared by all social actors, with an emphasis on children, allowing an education that prepares them to be protagonists of their worlds, in an exercise of transforming realities.

Palabras clave : Mozambique; ethnographic research; children; children's knowledge; education; social occupational therapy.
