The School dropout in the Agricultural Technical Course for young people and adults in the Federal Agricultural School of Rio do Sul/SC / A Evasão Escolar no Curso de Técnico Agrícola na modalidade de EJA da EAF Rio do Sul - SC




Decree 5,478/2005 establishes the profissionalization Program for Young and Adults in the Educational Federal Institutions. It was changed by Decree 5,840/2006, which set the National Program of Integr ation of the Professional Education with the Basic Education in Young and Adults Modality. This Program is a new challenge, because it offers an opportunity for some people to have a high school and professional education both for those who hadnt it in a proper time. The Federal Agricultural School from Rio do Sul started this program in 2005, when the Pedagogic Project from the course was created. The Alternating Pedagogic was chosen as the model to follow, integrated to High School. There were offered 25 places. 38 did the inscription, but only 27 came to interview. These 27 made the registration and started to study. But half year later, there were only 15 students attending to the classes, and 2 of them entered the regular course studies and 12 of them left school. This paper aims to comprehend the reasons why students left school. The references are: researches about; other researches about dropout; official documents analysis; the course pedagogic project; other school registrations; reports and minutes of meetings from the School. A questionnaire was applied as a guide to collect data from registered students and another from those who left. The results show that the Agricultural Technician Course for Young and Adults deals with people who work on their land, earning no more than four minimum wage a month. Their parents also have low education studies. 36% told that they gave up because it was too difficult to manage both study and work. Other 46% said they couldnt study because they had to work or the y wished to work in order to provide subsistence or keep familys standard of living. And finally, 18% told that they didnt fit the school. As seen above, the dropout was mainly caused by the way the course was offered: during daytime; the mode switching; and exclusion of some candidates already in the selection process. No other class could be made, because there were no sufficient candidates for it. Our conclusion is that this kind of course will only work for those grown up who already has a family and has a job if it would be offered in the students community, at night or in mode switching.
