Abstract: This article is part of the initial studies that we developed for the Master’s Degree Graduate Program in Education research for the Federal University of Maranhão (UFMA). From a bibliographical research, it looks to analyze the context of capital’s globalization and, consequently, the productive restructuring and its impact on educational reforms proposed by international organizations, whose recommendations offer managerialist models to the administration of the systems and public schools. It does focus on the principle of democratic management provided by the Constitution of the Federative Republic of Brazil, 1988, and the Law of Directives and Bases of National Education nº 9.394/96, which has, as biggest challenge, its execution though practices that encourage the people’s participation as a political and democratic act.
Key words: educational politics, educational reforms and democratic management
