Abstract

The article results from research whose object of analysis is the amplification of access to high school, the last stage of basic education in Brazil. The intention was to analyze the propositions by the Chamber of Deputies and Federal Senate to dimension the decisions of the Legislative branch regarding the implementation of the determinations of the Constitutional Amendment 59/2009, which required mandatory inclusion of all people between 4 to 17 years old in school until 2016. With regard to high school, a stage considered appropriate for this age group, 334 proposals were found, most of them law projects. The analysis was carried out initially pursuing three lines of investigation: the amplification of access and qualification of the permanence; improvement of supply and quality conditions; and incentive to completion and terminality. From these lines of investigation, the proposals were categorized and analyzed. The study showed an expressive predominance of projects aimed at promoting curricular changes. Of all the initiatives, only six became law.
