São Paulo – The Labor Court has prohibited the return to face-to-face classes in private schools in Rio de Janeiro. The return was foreseen by the state government for next Monday (14), after interruption started in March due to the covid-19 pandemic.

The order was issued by judge Elisio Correa de Moraes Neto, of the 23rd Labor Court of Rio de Janeiro. He determines that classes remain prohibited “until the vaccination of teachers and students. Or until it is demonstrated, through technical study or otherwise, that there is no risk to students, teachers and society ”.

The public civil action against the return to school was filed by the Union of Teachers of the Municipality of Rio de Janeiro and Region (Sinpro-Rio) against the state government of Rio and two employers’ unions.

Back to school

The state government established, by means of state decree 47,250, published on the 4th, that private schools would resume face-to-face classes on the 14th, while public schools would return from October 5th. However, with the proviso that the geographic region of the school had been in a low risk situation for two weeks.

According to the magistrate, the moving average of infected people in Rio de Janeiro has not yet reached a concrete reduction and has fluctuations. “The rate of contamination and deaths by coronavirus is still considerable, leading to the conclusion that there has not yet been a substantial change in the risk of life that led to the restrictive measures adopted by the state of Rio de Janeiro.”

In addition to prohibiting the return to face-to-face classes, the Labor Court has prohibited teaching establishments from calling teachers for face-to-face classes and activities, under penalty of a daily fine of R $ 10,000.

“The return to school represents a significant agglomeration of people in the same closed environment and on public transport”, defended the judge. And he added: “It is about the involvement, in large part, of children, who will not always be able to adapt to the health criteria”.

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.

Folly

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.

Restrictions

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.
