Some medias use measured as the average of the wages of the professors who this around R$ 1,527, 00, in relation to the per capita GIP or relation to the national average income to compare the quality of the remuneration between different countries. Also measure in parity of the purchase power is used the wage average. However, these measures little say regarding the capacity of these wages to attract good professionals, therefore as they criticize Loeb and Page (2000), nothing they inform regarding the choices that the work market where these professionals are inserted offers. ‘ ‘ In the comparison between developed nations and development – what it leaves of it are the majority of the poor countries of Africa and of Asia – Brazil also has a very inferior result to the average of excessively. Of a total of 43 countries where it was possible to compare the pointer, Brazil presented the sixth average greater of pupils/professor in education elementary school: 28,9.’ ‘ (Antonio Goals) Source: Leaf of S. Pablo/ANDES-SN. The data prove that the wages and remuneration of the professor still need bigger attention, therefore Brazil alone must reach the IDH? Index of Human Development if to dedicate to greater attention to the educational sector.

A problem that has been reason of intense quarrels on the part of educators and the government in the last decade. The Brazilian education gained prominence in the last decade for its importance in the economic development and social, however the population alone will have of that to be proud when the pointers of quality verified in the examinations ‘ ‘ they will be minimum aceitveis’ ‘ this, could only be possible, if professors will be awardees with worthy wages that can be felt valued. Therefore, to improve the career and the remuneration of the professor is an important step, that can contribute to revert the indifference of the profession, to reduce the social inaqualities, to raise auto-they esteem and to be able of purchase of professors, to improve the quality of education and still to favor the interest of the young for the teaching, therefore 50% of the pupils who make licenciatura course say not to feel will to follow the career due to the low wages. Also it can contribute so that professors of high level do not leave the career to enter another profession in search of better wages. To equalize the wages of the professors with the ones of other graduated professionals, or to diminish the difference between the same ones is a form to become the society more joust and igualitria.

The professors represent the third occupational group of Brazil (8.4%), therefore are necessary to raise ‘ ‘ status’ ‘ not only in relation to the wages, but its qualification, a time that are the main formadores of opinion and professionals qualified for the work market, therefore, transforming of values and attitudes of the social citizens that contribute for the economic growth.
