QUADROS, Claudemir de  e  STEPHANOU, Maria. Educational reform and production of ways of being and thinking: the experience of Rio Grande do Sul between the years 1930's and 1950's. Rev. Lusófona de Educação [online]. 2011, n.18, pp.97-110. ISSN 1645-7250.

An intense educational reform conducted by the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, was carried out from the second half of the 1930's on. This reform included the proposal and execution of public educational politics, its norms and intervention towards the organization of education as well as the guidance of pedagogical activities of public schools. In this context, discourses that aimed at constituting a moral, cultural, social, and hygienic discipline in the population were produced and publicized. The learning of the curriculum contents should happen with the acquisition of moral values, whose daily repetition would inform the nature of everyone and each one. The presuppositions of Catholicism and the life example of heroes, who were presented as a foundation of the direction of schools and teachers, were also enhanced. Celebrations of the National Week, the Children's Week, the Economy Week were promoted, readings were requested, libraries and cooperatives were created and campaigns related to sanitary education were done. In this sense, discourses constructed about education are not, simply, languages about education, but productive processes of the society towards which problems are classified and practices are reviewed.
