PERMEABILITY OF THE STATE TO PRIVATE ACTORS IN THE PROVISION OF EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION: WHAT MUNICIPAL PLANS SAY (2014-2024)?

ABSTRACT In this article we present the results of a research that sought to map the trends concerning the ways of supplying early childhood education, in the childcare stage, described in Municipal Education Plans, either formulated and/or reformulated in 2015 under the determination of Article 8, Law 13005/2014, which establishes the National Education Plan for the period from 2014 to 2024, as well as possible clarifying factors for the offer modality. The municipalities were selected through stratified random sampling. The research made use of techniques of descriptive statistics, content analysis and chi-square test to analyze the gathered data. The elements resulting from the study point out to the dispersion of the offer to actors located outside the state apparatus, allowing the statement that this reasoning tends to be a permanent policy in the country, with possible different effects on the education, reliant on the legal nature of the partner entity, since it is specified in Plans of State, not of government.
