ABOUT THE TALK

In the beginning of the 21st century, the Portuguese Ministry of Education launched “Programa Mais Sucesso Escolar”, with the objective of preventing school failure and dropout in primary education. This program is based on the alteration of the traditional school model, making it possible to group students and to manage time and space for instruction in a flexible way, which lead to a new generation of educational policies, more centered on supporting local initiatives of each school. This talk discusses the result of a multiple case study research carried out to understand if the way schools have reorganized themselves within these projects has been perceived as learning promoting.
