Bolsonaro populates olavistas education council and appoints pastor to MEC



São Paulo – The new Minister of Education of the Bolsonaro government is professor and pastor Milton Ribeiro. The appointment was announced on the President of the Republic’s social networks and made official minutes later in an extra edition of official diary. Also on Friday (10), Bolsonaro appointed new members to the National Council of Education (CNE), ignoring nominees by the state and municipal secretaries of the sector.

The position of the mEC had been vacant since June 18, with the departure of Abraham Weintraub. Another professor, Alberto Decotelli, was even announced as minister, but he did not even assume the ministry. Decotelli resigned after reports of having included false information in his CV and the charge of plagiarism in his master’s dissertation.

Milton Ribeiro is a Presbyterian pastor and is a member of the Public Ethics Committee, appointed by Bolsonaro.

Old Testament

The Lattes curriculum of the new minister informs that Milton Ribeiro has a degree in Theology and Law. Also according to the platform, he has a master’s degree in law from Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie and a doctorate in education from the University of São Paulo (USP).

The pastor has a specialization in the Old Testament by the Andrew Jumper Theological Center, in Old Testament Theology by Mackenzie, in University Management by the Council of Rectors of Brazilian Universities (Crub) and in Real Estate Law by FMU (Faculdades Metropolitanas Unidas). At Mackenzie, he is part of the deliberative council of the sponsoring entity. And he served as acting dean and vice dean.

Olavista Council

Among the 11 new names nominated by Bolsonaro for the National Education Council, there is a student of Bolsonaro’s writer and mentor, Olavo de Carvalho, a private university owner and a minister of the Superior Military Court. The names are on a list of nominees by former minister Abraham Weintraub.

On the other hand, there is no representative of the state and municipal secretaries, respectively the Council of State Secretaries of Education (Consed) and the National Union of Municipal Directors of Education (Undime). The entities released a note repudiating the appointments that have members of private education. The CNE is an advisory body of the Ministry of Education (MEC), responsible for proposing public policies.

Former Education Minister Fernando Haddad criticized the nominations. “I don’t know where these people come from,” he said. “They don’t interact. Education does not work as a system, but as trenches in a cultural war, ”said Haddad, who was minister of the portfolio for more than seven years.

Read the note from Consed and Undime

“The National Council of Education Secretaries and the National Union of Municipal Education Directors, which until the current formation had vacancies in the National Education Council, go public to repudiate the criteria used by the Federal Government for the new composition of the CNE. Ignoring the indications of the institutions responsible for the management of public education systems and disregarding the representations of 27 state networks and 5,568 municipal networks goes against the institution of the National Education System.

The CNE is a body of state and not a government. As the highest education institution, in order to have respectability, legitimacy and authenticity in its decisions, it should have a minimum of representation from the state and municipal public networks, responsible for more than 80% of all enrollments in Basic Education in the country and more than 40 millions of students.

Furthermore, at a time when the country is grappling with the expectation of appointing a new Minister of Education, when dialogue, mutual recognition and respect are essential values ​​for our relationship with MEC, disregard the suggestions of public education managers in the whole country for the composition of a collegiate body as important as the CNE sends a negative and worrying message.

Finally, in order to curb wrong decisions that do not respect and do not consider the importance of articulation between the three federative instances, it is necessary and urgent that the National Congress regulates the SNE, establishing in law a new form of composition of the CNE, with the due equal representation of the three spheres of government. ”

Centrals promote act for emergency aid of R $ 600 in São Paulo




São Paulo – Union centrals will return to the streets next Tuesday (3), for an act in São Paulo, in front of the headquarters of the Central Bank, on Avenida Paulista. On the centrals’ agenda is the maintenance of emergency aid in the amount of R $ 600 and the exemption from payroll so that companies can react to the effects of the pandemic and keep jobs. The demonstration is scheduled for 11am.

The issue of R $ 600 emergency aid has been the subject of a campaign by the exchanges since September, when the government issued Provisional Measure (MP) 1,000. The benefit was extended until December, but the Planalto cut the amount in half, to R $ 300. The opposition in the Chamber and the centrals want the MP to enter the agenda, which has been obstructed for a month. This week, the President of the House, Rodrigo Maia (DEM-RJ), said he could include the topic on the agenda.

The maintenance of tax relief for 17 sectors of the economy was vetoed by Jair Bolsonaro. At first, it ends in December. But Congress is mobilizing to overturn the veto. The president of the Senate and Congress, Davi Alcolumbre (DEM-AP), scheduled for next Wednesday (4) a joint session to analyze presidential vetoes and bills.

Positive for covid

The president of Força Sindical, Miguel Torres, tested positive for covid-19. On video, he said he had no serious symptoms and was breathing normally. Already medicated, he will be quarantined at home. With the confirmation, the manager’s family is conducting tests.
