ABSTRACT: In this paper we are concerned with the secondary education reform, highlighting the production of the National Curricular Common Base (BNCC). The goal is to show that, behind a discourse presented as “new’, the reform and its BNCC constitute an old discourse and reiterate purposes suffocated by disputes around the meanings and ends that concern this stage of basic education in the last 20 years. Among the conclusions, it is evident that the centrality conferred to the notion of competences in the document brings back the discourse present in curricular policy texts of the late 90’s and reintroduces limits already identified in previous research, among which the fact that such an approach is limited due to its pragmatic and ahistorical character.
