I suggest in this section that throughout their formation processes, Argentine and Brazilian educational systems have been subject to similar influences. However, it will also be suggested that these influences have been interpreted differently, resulting in particular patterns in each of these systems, since “Educational ideas do not just migrate; in speaking to different cultural histories and conditions they also change” (Alexander, 2000). Thus, in this section Argentine and Brazilian systems of education will be analyzed as contexts of reception and adaptation of two major international influences: Positivism and The New Education Movement.
