Decotelli resigns and leaves MEC before taking office



São Paulo – One day after stating that he would remain in the position of Minister of Education, Carlos Decotelli presented today (30) a resignation from the MEC. The wear and tear on the government and the pressure from the military, embarrassed by the series of denials about the academic title of his nominee, weighed on President Jair Bolsonaro’s decision to end the crisis.

Decotelli was introduced last Thursday (25) by Bolsonaro, through his Twitter. In the post, the president highlighted the chosen candidate’s curriculum, which included a postdoctoral degree from the University of Wuppertal, in Germany, a doctorate from the National University of Rosario, in Argentina, and a master’s degree from the Getulio Vargas Foundation. The doctorate was denied on Friday, the signs of plagiarism in the master’s degree were exposed on Saturday by a university professor and yesterday it was the turn of the German institution to deny that the nominee had completed the alleged course.

:: Minister of Education may have revoked his master’s degree

According to a report by Folha de S.Paulo, the Dean of the Technological Institute of Aeronautics (ITA), Anderson Correia, is the most highly rated to assume the position. But there are other names, such as Paraná’s Secretary of Education, Renato Feder, a member of the National Education Council Antonio Freitas, who is a professor at the Getúlio Vargas Foundation – who appeared as a Decotelli advisor in Rosario – and the former MEC advisor Sérgio Sant’Ana.

Salles and Damares

Candidate for vice president of Fernando Haddad in the 2018 election, Manuela d’Ávila (PCdoB) used her Twitter to remind other Bolsonaro ministers who lied in their resumes. And that they should also lose their positions.

Ricardo Salles, from the Environment, was claiming to hold a master’s degree in public policy from Yale University, in the United States. He was denied almost two months after taking office, The Intercept Brazil. In turn, Damares claimed to have a master’s degree, when in fact he didn’t. He ended up revealing that he was a master of his church’s activities.

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.
