Frequency of students in Doria’s distance education does not reach 30%



São Paulo – The proposal of the São Paulo governor, João Doria (PSDB), to continue the school year of education with distance learning (EaD) reaches less than 30% of students in public schools. It is what shows the survey of the Union of Teachers of Official Education of the State (Apeoesp).

Since the 21st, the entity has been monitoring students’ access to distance education activities. According to data voluntarily reported by teachers from state schools – responsible for monitoring attendance in their subjects – Apeoesp observed that between 12% and 27% of students have participated in classes. The information is also part of a new platform of the entity, which daily discloses data on student attendance.

The collection on the 21st shows, for example, that 29,315 students were enrolled for access to EaD disciplines, but only 7,217 attended – an access rate of 24.48%. The following day, of 17,242 enrolled, 4,710 students participated, increasing the rate to 27.85%.

On Saturday (23), when the number of enrolled students reached 3,139, with 799 accessing distance education, the attendance rate was 25.45%. This Tuesday (26), participation was even lower, with an index of only 12.7% access. Of the 19,221 students, only 2,436 attended.

Bureaucracy x pedagogy

In an interview with journalists Marilu Cabañas and Glauco Faria, from Current Brazil Newspaper, the president of Apeoesp, state deputy Maria Izabel Azevedo Noronha, Bebel (PT), points out that the number is “far below” among the universe of 3.5 million public school students. “It is an inequality marked by the social, because many students are not able to have computers, to have access to broadband internet”, he points out. For her, the best in this pandemic moment would be to invest in the continuing education of teachers and school staff, and to expand access to students’ education also using radio broadcasting services.

“Establishing a bureaucratic academic year to the detriment of a pedagogical academic year, which guarantees access to knowledge, is to promote educational exclusion, and we at Apeoesp are radically against this type of thing. Our poor students, from the periphery, from the slums, already pay a very high price for inequality. This is something of a secretary who has never stepped foot in a public school for the poor, ”he says.

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.
