It is necessary, however, that some actions are carried out by the main actors of society, such as educational institutions, teachers, students, and the government itself through converging of more sustained actions in order to contribute to the quality improvement of education.

The methodology category chosen for the realisation of this study was exploratory research by questionnaire administered through the internet (survey), addressed to professors, researchers and professionals of organisation and schools management areas using a predetermined sequence of questions.
