Covas ignored proposals from families and teachers to the protocol back to school

São Paulo – The Council of Representatives of the School Councils (Crece Central) of the city of São Paulo, which brings together family members of students and public school teachers, denounce that the government of Mayor Bruno Covas (PSDB) did not incorporate the demands presented by parents of students and education professionals in the protocol back to school. He also rejected the proposal for public consultation with families regarding the return of classes in 2020. “We understand that this protocol does not guarantee health security at a time when the numbers of covid-19 are still alarming”, say the representatives.

The school councils also consider it insufficient that the Municipal Secretary of Education has made all civil servants in the area go through a preparation course called “Self-care: a new look in times of pandemic”. And they state that the Covas government cannot pass on to the school councils the decision on the return to school, both on a non-mandatory basis, which begins this week, and on regular education, which is expected to resume in November.

“Crece Central maintains its position contrary to the return to face-to-face activities in the middle of the pandemic, without control and without the proper vaccine, be they extracurricular activities, on two days a week, or regular activities, with a reduced percentage of students. Nothing justifies the exposure of babies and children, students and family members and education professionals to the new coronavirus, which still causes hundreds of victims in our country. Learning is recovering, lives are not ”, say the representatives.

School councils also point out that, although students are less likely to develop complications, they can also die from covid-19. Since the beginning of the pandemic, at least 106 children and adolescents aged zero to 19 have died. In addition, the percentage of children who have already been infected with covid-19 is low, around 18%. This reveals a great potential for contamination that can lead to outbreaks in schools – and possible consequences for families – even with total respect for the back to school protocol.

Another problem is that the percentage of asymptomatic children is much higher than that of adults. Approximately 65% ​​of small children, against 40% among more mature people. This is a complicating factor to control an eventual infection, even with the protocol back to school, since even being asymptomatic it is possible to transmit the disease, but there would be no evidence of contamination to isolate the case.

The Covas government pushed the decision to return to regular classes in 2020 until 3 November. However, it authorized the resumption of extracurricular activities, both in public and private schools. Thus, physical activities, psychosocial actions and art and culture classes, for example, can be resumed, with a maximum of 20% of students per schedule. However, so far there is no information about schools in the municipal network that have adhered to the proposal.

São Paulo – Former Bolivian President Evo Morales commented, this Wednesday (21st), the importance of youth in the electoral process that led Luis Arce, from the Movement to Socialism (MAS), to victory in the presidential election of October 18 . “Young people saw what it is like to live under the right and the dictatorship. And they reflected on how we were with our revolution and how we were under the coup, ”he said. Evo was overthrown by a coup in November 2019 that brought lawyer and TV presenter Jeanine Áñez to the presidency. With 90% of the official count completed. at 3:40 pm on this Wednesday (21st), Luis Arce approaches 55% of the valid votes. “What was at stake on October 18 was to go back to the past with the privatists or continue to the future with the nationalists,” said Evo Morales in an interview with Breno Altman (watch below).

Asked how the country will recover from the economic crisis aggravated by the coronavirus pandemic, he replied that it will be with the presence of the state. The Bolivian guaranteed that Bolivia will normalize relations with China, Cuba, “some European countries” and Russia. “Those who once asked for market, market, market, now say State, State State, in the face of the pandemic.”

Vaccine against covid-19

“We are going to face the pandemic. When we have the vaccine, we will distribute it to all 11 million Bolivians for free. ” According to him, tackling the pandemic and the crisis will be done through joint work between the federal government, governors and mayors.

In Brazil, President Jair Bolsonaro not only boycotts health policies, but goes further. On Wednesday, he forbade the country to buy the Chinese vaccine CoronaVac, which would have 46 million doses through negotiations with the state of São Paulo announced the day before by the Minister of Health, Eduardo Pazuello. “I don’t give up my authority”, justified the Brazilian’s head of state.

South America

About neighbors in South America, Evo Morales highlighted the “profound ideological and programmatic difference” between MAS and the president of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, from Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, and the former Argentine president Mauricio Macri. But it was diplomatic. “Whether it is left or right, we must work together respecting our differences. South Americans cannot be isolated, ”he said.

Morales acknowledged that he may have been mistaken as president. “I was wrong, but I am a human being,” he said. “Now we have experience in public management, and we are going to take Bolivia forward, united, organized.” He affirmed that the new government will make “a pact of union between the parties of the right, businessmen and workers, a great national agreement, to raise the economy”, adding: “The moment is to consolidate our process of change, democracy does not end on election day ”.

Evo has been in Argentina since December 2019, where he went into exile after the coup in the country. He said that the return to his country still has no forecast. In an interview with BBC Brazil, the president-elect was not positive about the possible participation of the ex-president in the new government. “If Evo Morales wants to help us, he will be very welcome. But that does not mean that Morales will be in the government. It will be my government, ”he said.
