In SP, back to school during the pandemic ‘failed’, says Bebel

Published

on

São Paulo – For the president of the Union of Teachers in Official Education of the State of São Paulo (Apeoesp) and state deputy Professor Bebel (PT), the process of reopening schools in the state amid the pandemic “has failed”. The São Paulo government had authorized the return to face-to-face classes as of last Wednesday (7) in cities that were at least 28 days in the yellow phase of the São Paulo Plan. However, at least 306 of the 645 municipalities in the state have already defined face-to-face activities only to resume in 2021.

Bebel says that two factors drove the decision to reopen: pressure from private schools and the proximity of municipal elections. According to her, it is the “economic power” that rules the state of São Paulo.

As, at this moment, the return is optional, both for students and for education professionals, the majority chose not to join in-person activities. Bebel also made an appeal: “In a very affectionate way, I want to ask parents: do not send your children to schools. We recover the school year. Lives, no ”.

In an interview with Glauco Faria, Current Brazil Newspaper this Tuesday (13), she stated that the spread of covid-19 is not controlled. On the other hand, the total return of classes would leave around 8 million people – including students, teachers and employees – exposed to the risk of contamination.

In the public network, according to data from the State Department of Education, 904 state schools reopened in 219 municipalities, representing 17% of the total of 5,100 schools. But only regular high school and Youth and Adult Education (EJA) classes were resumed. In the capital of São Paulo, both public and private schools can only take tutoring classes.

Virtual mobilization

The deputy points out that, on Saturday (10), Governor João Doria (PSDB) published a decree that extends the quarantine throughout the state until November 16. Therefore, the return of elementary school students to the state network should only occur after this date. Until then, the return forecast was for November 3rd.

In addition, Bebel also announced that Apeoesp will promote, next Saturday (17th), a regionalized popular assembly. With the virtual participation of students, parents, teachers and employees, they must decide whether or not to return to face-to-face activities. If the government insists on pushing for the reopening of state schools, the union can “toughen up” the position and even review the continuity of activities at a distance.

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.
