This research is based on the hypothesis that the discourses and positions of deaf teachers, who are active in the struggles for improvements in education, can be a tool in favor of bilingual schools for the deaf people in Brazil, in order to obtain an educational emancipation, providing accessibility and the right to be able to constitute their pedagogical process with their natural language. It is linked to the historical, social and political context of the deaf community, since the linguistic identity of the individual is constituted from the social identity (QUADROS, KARNOPP, 2004). From this perspective, the main objective is to analyze these discourses and identify possible macro-categories that relate to the process of "educational emancipation" and which culminated, in 2011, in a national mobilization of the Deaf people called 'Blue September'. Thus, this research aims to contribute and understand the nuances that outline the deaf militants' discourses regarding the educational system that is offered to the Brazilian Deaf community in the social context, politics, identity and deaf culture. It is understood that the deaf community had its struggle visible since 2002 with the approval of the Law 10.436, which recognizes the Brazilian language of signs - Libras - as the official language of this “people” (PERLIN, 1998; STROBEL, 2006; QUADROS; KARNOPP, 2004). Linked to the historical context, this study used the theoretical and methodological contribution of Systemic Functional Linguistics, initially developed by Halliday (1985; 1994), Halliday and Hassan (1989) and, posteriorly by his followers, such as Halliday and Matthiessen (2004), Eggins (1994) and Thompson (1996). The analyses were performed based on the Appraisal system proposed by Martin (2004), Martin and White (2005) and Martin and Rose (2003; 2007), focusing on the subsystem of Engagement that makes it possible to understand the monoglossical and heteroglossical present in these discourses. In the social, political, identity and cultural context, this study explains the association we conjecture to exist between certain dialogical choices assumed by the discourse producer. The corpus of this study is composed of nine discourses of deaf militants teachers, who are participants of the deaf movement, subdividing in thirty excerpts, being nine monoglossical evaluations and twenty one heteroglossical evaluations, which is divided into thirteen evaluations by dialogical contraction and eight evaluations by dialogical expansion. The analysis of these discourses allowed us to present positive results about educational accessibility and identify some characteristics for the search of educational emancipation through bilingual and linguistic policies.
