By analyzing the current debate that is taking place in Brazil about the neutrality of education, the thesis addresses the question of how schools should deal with stereotypes, prejudices and stigmas. This question is intrinsically related with the role of education in integrating marginalized groups and it will be analyzed from the concept of pluralism that a neutral education and an emancipatory or democratic education support in the fields of: (i) moral and religious conceptions, specifically regarding the teaching of gender identity; (ii) political-partisan issues; and (iii) political themes. In this regards, arguments are presented in defense of an emancipatory education, based on the understanding that education is a political act where there is no neutrality.
