Educar para Comprender y Poder Cambiar la Ciudad
Educating for Understanding and Be Able to Change the City
The article discusses the limitations and challenges of what has been agreed to denominate "Education for traffic" in Brazil, based on experiences with children of school age in the periphery of São Paulo (especially Basic Education, aged 6 and 14 years). We point out how education focused on road insecurity is practiced in Brazil and how public policies have not accompanied, until now, the progress observed in the legislation. We pretend to show that, unlike "educating for traffic", it is necessary to educate the children to understand the city in which they live, using playful tools such as, for example, critical and purposeful workshops held in schools or, preferably, in public spaces.
