Enem: candidates report that social distance was not respected

Published

on

Brasil de Fato – The first stage of the National High School Examination (Enem) was marked by agglomerations and disregard for health standards to prevent the spread of covid-19. After completing the test, this Sunday (17), thousands of students went to social networks to denounce that the social distance was not respected in their test places.

The most common reports, from several different locations around Brazil, indicate that the distance between the candidates’ tables was less than recommended. In addition, that there was no alcohol gel available at the entrance to all classrooms. And that some rooms didn’t even have windows.

General organizational problems have also been reported. During the afternoon, the Brazilian Union of Secondary Students (Ubes) warned of cases of students in Santa Catarina, Paraná and São Paulo, who were unable to take the exams because the exam places were already full. In these cases, candidates were informed that they will take the test on February 23 and 24, the same date as for the exam in Amazonas, where the test was postponed due to the sanitary collapse of the last week.

Complaints were recurrent. On the social network Twitter, for example, there were at least five posts per minute mentioning the words “Enem” and “distanciamento”, in the late afternoon of this Sunday. Hundreds of candidates drew attention to the fact that, in their test rooms, the distance was only guaranteed because a significant part of the candidates did not attend, leaving the rooms partially empty.

The National Institute of Educational Studies and Research Anísio Teixeira (Inep), responsible for the exam, has not yet commented on the complaints nor has it released how many of the 5.7 million enrolled people attended the exam. The Minister of Education, Milton Ribeiro, visited one of the test sites and informed only that the portfolio was aware of the reports and will “investigate” the situation.

The first stage of Enem was carried out in the middle of the second wave of the covid-19, in which Brazil has the worst average of deaths since August.

O Brasil de Fato selected, in an interval of five minutes, some reports that show why entities such as the National Students Union (UNE) and Ubes tried, until the last hour, to postpone the application of the tests.
