MEC despises consultation with students and Enem brand for January



São Paulo – The Ministry of Education (MEC) and the National Institute for Educational Research Anísio Teixeira (Inep), responsible for the National High School Exam (Enem) announced today (8) the test schedule for 2020. The exams will be applied between the months of January and February 2021.

The announcement was made by the executive secretary of the Ministry
of Education (MEC), Antonio
Paulo Vogel, and the president of the National Institute of Studies and Research
Anísio Teixeira (Inep),
Alexandre Lopes, during a press conference in Brasília.

According to the executive secretary of MEC, Antonio
Paulo Vogel, and the president of Inep, Alexandre Lopes, the 5.7 million
students registered for the printed exams will take the test on the 17th and 24th of
January. The 96 thousand registered in the digital modality, on January 31 and
February. The results will be released as of March 29.

According to Vogel, the decision may not be “perfect and wonderful for everyone”, but the decision was “technical” and more suitable for everyone, since it was necessary to articulate the calendar with states and universities ”, he said, referring to a poll that pointed out that the majority of participants voted in May. But the government believes that the timetable will not harm those approved in terms of entering universities in the first semester.

The Executive Secretary argued that if the evidence
stay for May, students would miss the first semester, since
they would only enter the second semester at the university.

According to Inep, the questions were ready even before the new coronavirus arrived in the country.


If it were up to the ministry, the tests would be done in November. But there was strong pressure from students and teachers, arguing that most students would be penalized. Most do not have access to the internet or a suitable place to study at home. This would increase inequality in access to universities. In view of the government’s intransigence, there was judicial questioning and the case ended up in Congress, which voted to postpone it.

The National Student Union (UNE) criticized the adopted timetable. “The disclosure of the new dates for ENEM 2020 chosen by the MEC (17 and 24 January) only demonstrate how they treat the students’ opinion: with contempt! They did not listen to the student bodies at any time and ignored the result of the consultation that they themselves made! ”, Said the president of the organization, Iago Montalvão, through Twitter.

“It is clear that the opinion of deans and secretaries of education is important. But MEC decided not to listen to the main players involved in deciding the new ENEM dates: the students. That’s how this government talks about democracy ”.

Entities mobilize against cuts in the Education budget




São Paulo – Students and education workers are holding demonstrations all over Brazil, this Wednesday (23), against the new budget cuts proposed by President Jair Bolsonaro. The movement calls for the approval of a fair budget for education in 2021.

Students criticize the Bolsonaro government’s budget proposal, which cuts R $ 1.8 billion in discretionary expenses at federal educational institutions. According to them, this reduction affects the adaptation for the return of face-to-face classes and the Student Assistance Program (Pnaes) in universities and federal institutes.

“Every student knows the difference it makes to have a tray at a lower price, so that the account closes at the end of the month. Without Pnaes resources, the price may increase. How will the student stay at the university without money to eat? The country is losing ”, warned the president of the National Students Union (UNE), Iago Montalvão.

In addition, the two research promotion agencies in Brazil, the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) and the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (Capes), have their budgets dependent on supplementary credits, which can compromise the payment of scholarships in 2021.

“The year 2021 is one of reconstruction of the country. Investments in research, science and technology are strategic! But the federal government thinks otherwise and plans to cut education for next year, ”defended federal deputy Rosa Neide (PT-MT).

On the streets and tweeting

Student bodies also demand respect for university autonomy and the appointment of deans and candidates. Also included is the installation of the Mixed Budget Committee and a General Commission in the Brazilian Parliament to discuss resources for Education for 2021.

The act was convened by UNE, together with the Brazilian Union of Secondary Students (UBES) and the National Association of Graduate Students (ANPG). In Brasília, they perform an act at the Esplanada dos Ministérios, in the morning. Demonstrations are planned in other capitals, such as São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and Salvador.

The National Confederation of Education Workers (CNTE) has endorsed the protest and will accompany students in the demonstrations. “We are going to make a big stir in education. Enough of attacks on education professionals and students. We cannot accept the reduction of the education budget for 2021. We need more investments, but with this mismanagement there are no conditions ”, said the president of the entity, Heleno Araújo.

On social networks, mainly on Twitter, the student movement has been promoting, since 10 am, a ‘tweet’ with the hashtag # SalveAEducação to denounce the cuts in the Education budget.
