In Sao Paulo, public hiring of teachers occurs in a peculiar way, especially when it comes to temporary teachers. With a considerable number of teachers in this situation, the State Department of Education of São Paulo (SEE / SP) has been innovating in the process of admission of temporary teachers, changing a situation that has remained relatively stable since the enactment of Law 500/74. This research intends to discuss the changes undertaken in the hiring of temporary teachers in the state of São Paulo from 2007 that led to the creation of different classes and different types of work contracts.
