After that the president-elect Jair Jair bolsonaro pulled the teacher’s guide Mozart Neves, featured names such as the lawyer William Schelb federal deputy Izalci Lucas (PSDB-DF), both well-known defenders of the school without a party.

Izalci is also the author of one of the projects in this theme. Name Schelb moved Jair bolsonaro today and appealed to the evangelical pool.

“It is wrong to use the doctrine of ideology as a guide to public policy. This is more perverse still in education because it can destroy generations,” says the director of the Center for excellence and innovation in the educational policies of the Getúlio Vargas Foundation, Claudia Costin. Indicate that you need a technical framework for the Ministry of education, to understand why Brazil is in a situation in which it is.

Claudia was the education director of the World Bank, minister in the government of Fernando Henrique Cardoso, the Ministry of education in Rio. “I don’t want to exclude anyone, but you can’t set the problems of education of the alleged damage. If this was easy to solve. It is much more complicated, goes the little craft and vocational training institute, the status of the work by the results we have obtained from international assessments of students”.

She lamented the decline Jair bolsonaro in relation to Mozart. “We are not a religious state, a name may not be rejected by the body of religion.”

A nanny of one of the largest private schools in São Paulo, which struggled for Jair bolsonaro, who asked not to be named, said that the state that the connotation Schelb would be a mistake “serious”. “If he was to appoint someone connected to this war (the school without a tip) all teachers will unite against.

No school non-party may not be the subject of education in the country, this is a fringe debate. “This is a program that is not compatible with the other tasks that we need to do because the teacher should be an ally in the implementation of the policy and not the persecution of a person.”

At Semesp, the largest entity of private universities in the country, also released a message that “appeals to the account of the president-elect” to “review criteria”.

The purpose of the names bandied about for the position of Education Minister in the next government, the Brazilian Association of private schools (Abepar) proposes that the future owner of the domain is the name of the technician, the charge is broad acceptance on the part of the major education institutions of the entities that are most representative in the sector.

The Ex-president of the University Mozart Neves Ramos, for example, enjoy wide acceptance in the academic and educational special acts taken in the course of public life and the ability to dialogue as shown in the different positions.

We can say that Brazil need to name the content in front of the Ministry of education to join the educational sector and the sum of the forces that lead us to overcome serious problems in the country in this area.

On Abepar think a big step backwards if the holder of MEC is the name of a stranger to the area education, which is the result of political choices and ideological, tend to defend theses reactionary, outdated and questionable, as is the case in a school project without a party.

We believe that if you choose to change is the name in this line, most likely we face a period of severe turmoil in the academic and educational, with a loss to the students and teachers of public and private education.

In these circumstances, we hope that the new government comply with some of your actions in the area of education, taking into account the real interests of the country, acting with self-confidence and intelligence, seeking to spread peace in the society and the continuous improvement of the quality of National Education.
