Supervisão escolar S/A: a produção de supervisoras gerentes em um programa de formação continuada
Leal, Adriana Bergold Leal
The central theme of this dissertation is the school supervision and it investigates the settings of this field of knowledge in the Contemporary. It is intended to show, in this research, the complex series of relationships in which the school supervision is embedded, seeking to identify and discuss some statements of this field of knowledge, showing some conditions under which they work and some effects they produce. To do so, a theoreticalmethodological support is used based on Michel Foucault’s studies, which used the concepts of governmentality, discourse analysis, and power as tools to operate with empirical corpus. This was organized by some materials that make up the continuing education program called Formar em Rede (Network Graduating), developed between the years 2009 and 2011 by the Avisa Lá Institute, in São Paulo, and the Municipal Education Department of Novo Hamburgo/RS. Making use of those materials, the focus was the perception of how school supervision is made up, the discussion of truths held to such function, as well as the questions on political rationalities that produce school supervision in the Contemporary. After identifying some conditions which allowed the emergence of Contemporary in school supervision, it was noticed that this field of knowledge is insertedin an organized society based on power relations of an entrepreneurial culture, which made possible to identify that this function produces on itself and on teachers as entrepreneurs themselves, inside a performative matrix, fixing those subjects as autonomous and regulating them in order to place and/or keep themselves at the level of permanent production. It was observed that school supervision acts inside that matrix making each subject to self-regulate its actions from the work of continuing education to the one which teachers are called upon to take part. These effects make evident that the school supervision operates via management practices and subjects, generating power savings. It was also noticed that due to there strain that school supervision is exposed, there is an active subject, who diverges and questions the manner in which the actions fall on itself. Those findings lead to the conclusion that school supervision in Contemporary, linked to a corporate culture, answers productively to this call, configuring as a supervision that adheres to the format of a company, therefore a supervision Co. That manufactures a supervising manager.
