The Agricultural Family Schools were installed in Brazil as a differentiated pedagogical proposal to serve rural communities: Pedagogy of Alternation. With a pedagogical principle that allows the integration of studies with work in the field, alternating training aims to contain the rural exodus, offering education for the aptitude of individuals, both in the sense of removing their means of survival from small properties, as well as to raise awareness of the social context in which they find themselves, making them citizens willing to fight for better living conditions in rural areas. This research has as its guiding theme the formation of students through the Pedagogy of Alternation at Agricultural Family School Vida Comunitária, an educational institution located in the rural area of the municipality of Comercinho, in Minas Gerais. The objective of the research is to understand, starting from the precepts of Historical Materialism, if the training that the School offers can minimize the social problems faced by small producers, in a context of advancing agribusiness, which brings with it a production system that privileges the large rural areas and monoculture, causing the loss of space for small farmers and, consequently, compromising their survival in rural areas. Based on contact with the School and its actors, documentary analysis and readings that address Historical Materialism, Brazilian Education and Pedagogy of Alternation, the institution seeks to find the possibility of a formative process focused on praxis, which raises the material and human conditions of the students, as intended by the creators of the Agricultural Families Schools, especially in the Brazilian context.
