Resumo: There is no doubt about the importance of Chemistry in current technological society. As a central science in technological processes, the chemistry level development is a fundamental indicative of a country economic relations. At the same time, and paradoxically, its study by new generations has become increasingly devoid of meaning. In Brazil the problems of chemistry teaching, pointed out by numerous researchers, are varied in nature, among them: (i) political and economic issues that determine how small is invested in education; (ii) lack of own goals; (iii) inadequate content selection; (iv) misguided visions of science in educational processes, and very especially; (v) issues associated to teacher training and related to the quality of educational aspects in initial training courses and to the necessary quantity to meet the country’s demands. In addition to the problems mentioned, exists in Brazil a community of researchers in Chemical Education for nearly 40 years that has been strengthening this scientific research field with the political commitment to a relevant chemistry teaching to students and to the country. This community has created specific forums of socialization and validation of scientific production, producing quality instructional material and developing educational projects and publishing books and periodicals. This article intends to expose these chemistry teaching specificities in secondary school in Brazil in order to contribute to the improvement of teaching in the context of the country educational policy.
