This paper deals with the use of education in Brazil as a historical strategy of domination, submission and class exclusion. It has the dualism of Brazilian education as its central point, in other words, the separation between the general formation, designated to the elites, and the professional training, designated to the lower class. This paper is a bibliographic research about the history of Professional Education in Brazil. The creation of the Law 5.692/71 was established as a time limit due to the fact that it has enabled the end or the reduction of dualism by instituting the mandatory professionalization in high school teaching. However, despite this positive aspect, this law, as well as other State actions throughout the XX century, has constituted an alternative for the increase of economic productivity and for the contention of the lower class, not representing a democratization of education.
