Finland recently published modifications in the structure of public schools. One of the changes was to put an end to the structure of « disciplines », the result of an intense discussion on the long term education of students. Either radical or not the decision, it is important to preserve the critics on the current model of Education, at least in the Brazilian case. The Brazilian model, governed by strict rules of the field of education hinders the humanistic and pluralistic method of learning, instead, there is an excessive concern with the technical training of the student, with the aim to prepare them to evaluation tests (such as FUVEST) for university access. Even this purpose, training for university access, has not been successfully achieved by public schools.
