Abstract

Educational and Schooling Concepts of Client Women at a Public Health Clinic in Rio De Janeiro: This work has the objective to evaluate concepts of education and schooling reported by women attending a Public Health Clinic in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Using a qualitative research methodology, the selection of women for 60 interviews followed two criteria of maximum variation in the sampling for both the hour of the interview as well as the age of the women. The results indicate that these women had little schooling and a few if any opportunity to take part of educational non-formal courses. The concepts of education and schooling were divided into the following categories: adequate social behavior, value, professional development, health and lack of schooling. This research concludes that it is pressing to develop educational projects taking into account what is significant from these women's perspective in regard to education and schooling, what would be decisive to promote their citizenship. Key words: formal education, non-formal education, informal education, women and citizenship
