Mayor of Itapevi (SP) asks the Federal Court to suspend Enem



São Paulo – The suspension of the National High School Examination schedule (Enem) is the target of a Public Civil Action filed at the 5th Civil Court of the São Paulo judicial subsection this Wednesday (13th) by the mayor of Itapevi, Igor Soares (Pode) . The request to suspend Enem comes amid a student movement – #AdiaEnem -, marked by virtual protests this-Friday (15)

The city manager of the Metropolitan Region of São Paulo wants to suspend the registration, which must be done until the next 22nd, and the face-to-face tests, scheduled for the 1st and 8th of November.

“Public, private and military schools from all over Brazil
have their face-to-face classes suspended. There have been cases of suspension since mid
March, compromising all learning dynamics ”, justified the mayor.

Contrary to the Ministry of Education’s advertisement, which exposes a distorted image of the reality of the vast majority of Brazilian students, there is great difficulty for distance learning.

In cities with poorer populations, such as Itapevi, many young people do not have an adequate structure to study at home. There is a lack of computers and also space, where they can have silence and peace to concentrate on their studies – hence the mayor went to court.

“Another problem is the lack of access to the internet. Unfortunately, the internet is still not for everyone, that is, distance learning would not be possible for at least 30% of students in the city of Itapevi ”, said Igor. “The realization of Enem at that moment will be a measure of exclusion of the less fortunate,” added the mayor.

Other countries

According to the city hall, the public civil action includes a survey on the measures of other countries in relation to national evidence. Among the 19 who have higher education entrance exams similar to Enem, 14 changed the schedule due to the pandemic that is plaguing the world.

“Maintaining the Enem 2020 schedule is to widen inequalities in access to higher education throughout an educational cycle, violating citizenship, the right to education, the dignity of the human person, national development – since a rich country is a country that it guarantees quality education – and the promotion of the good of all, especially the most needy, among other constitutional precepts ”, defended the mayor.

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.
