Community does not answer Doria’s call back to classes for reinforcement



São Paulo – The first day of the return to school for school reinforcement started today (8) by the São Paulo government of João Doria (PSDB) had the participation of only 3.53% of state schools in São Paulo. According to the balance of the São Paulo government, 200 units opened their doors in 128 cities, but the São Paulo State Department of Education was unable to inform how many students and teachers participated in the activities. The capital of São Paulo and all 38 other cities in Greater São Paulo, in addition to 26 other cities, expressly vetoed any kind of back to school in September.

For the Union of Teachers of Official Education of the State of São Paulo (Apeoesp), it was clear that teachers and students will not join the project back to Doria’s classes without security in the middle of the pandemic.

Decision to return to school this year in São Paulo leaves until September 25

“The information we have indicates that common sense is prevailing on this 8th of September. At least 95% of school communities are not endorsing the Doria Government’s irresponsibility. In defense of life, they refuse to resume face-to-face activities in schools, amid the pandemic of covid-19. I am very pleased to see that the awareness work that Apeoesp has been doing incessantly has had an effect. We will continue to dialogue with teachers, students, employees, parents and guardians and with society in general. And explain that we can only return to schools after the pandemic ”, said the union president and state deputy, professor Bebel (PT).

The activities that can be resumed are psychosocial care, tutoring, tutoring and sports or cultural activities. A maximum of 20% of students can participate. According to the Doria government, the priority is to assist students in the 1st and 2nd years of elementary school – literacy period; 5th and 9th years of Elementary School – closing of cycles; and 3rd year of high school. Back to school with regular content is scheduled for October 7.

In addition to the cities that vetoed any form of back to school in September, the regions of Registro, Presidente Prudente, São José do Rio Preto, Barretos, São João da Boa Vista and Marília are less than 28 days in the 3-yellow phase of the Plan São Paulo and cannot reopen schools. In addition to them, the regions of Franca and Ribeirão Preto are in phase 2-orange and also cannot reopen.

“We still have the decision about October. We are scheduled to return to school on October 7 and we still have to comply with some of the conditionalities of September.

Union denounces the death of 20 teachers by covid-19 after back to school in SP




São Paulo – The Union of Teachers of Official Education of the State of São Paulo (Apeoesp) held a demonstration today (4) denouncing the death of at least 20 teachers by covid-19 since the beginning of the return to school in the state of São Paulo Paulo. The entity also accounts for 1,861 confirmed cases of covid-19 in 850 schools. The protest took place in front of the State Department of Education of the government of João Doria (PSDB), after a motorcade through the streets of the capital of São Paulo. In addition to honoring these teachers, the act also called for an immediate suspension of classes until the new coronavirus pandemic is controlled in the state.

The demonstration began in the Masp free space, on Avenida Paulista. From there, the teachers went to the State Department of Education, at Praça da República. “It is unacceptable what the Doria government has been doing with teachers. Without closing schools, keeping thousands of teachers and staff and millions of students circulating every day, many in public transport, Doria and her Education Secretary reveal themselves as they are: enemies of life ”, said the president of Apeoesp and state deputy, Professor Bebel.

The Doria government has not released records of confirmed and suspected covid-19 cases in schools for two weeks. Much less if there was a death by covid-19 of teachers, students or other education workers. In the only balance sheet released on February 16, there were 741 confirmed cases and 1,133 suspected cases.


Although it claims that back to school amid the covid-19 pandemic is safe, the Doria government has restricted access to the Education Information and Monitoring System for Covid-19. With that, the governor leaves the assessment of the resumption of activities without any transparency. Only one server from each school can be registered and access the system, both to notify suspected or confirmed cases of the disease at school, and to monitor the general situation of the pandemic in the public school system.

The Secretary of State for Health of São Paulo, Jean Gorinchteyn, defended, on Tuesday (2), the closure of schools across the state due to the worsening of the pandemic of covid-19. He admitted that the increase in the circulation of people promoted by the return to school has contributed to the worsening of the transmission of the new coronavirus in recent weeks, as teachers and health experts have always said it would happen. Today, São Paulo has 17,802, with 9,910 in the ward and 7,892 in the ICU, the largest number in the entire pandemic.

“If we understand that people are threatened
against the virus, against the collapse (of the health system), we have to reevaluate
situations that could be avoided. One of them is the situation of the school. THE
The problem is not the school, but the movement of people. Teachers, students, parents
who take and bring their children. Even in public transport, the exposure that the
we end up putting people. At this point, it is worth noting that this
question of not having classes, ”said Gorinchteyn, in an interview with CBN radio.


In addition to the case records and the denunciation of the death of these teachers by covid-19, Apeoesp also highlights data from the Hospital do Servidor Público Estadual (HSPE) that shows the exhaustion of intensive care units (ICU) after returning to school. According to the internal bulletin of the HSPE, on Monday (1), the ICU occupancy for patients with covid-19 in the hospital is 95%. In wards, the occupation is 73%.

Yesterday, Doria announced that the entire state will enter the red quarantine phase for two weeks, starting on Saturday (6), due to the worsening of the covid-19 pandemic in São Paulo. However, he decided to keep the schools open. “Despite the restriction measures, state schools will continue to open their doors at the worst moment of the pandemic”, criticized Bebel, who guaranteed the continuation of the teachers’ strike, which started on February 8.
