According to the words of the executive president of Todos Pela Educação

We anticipated that 2021 would be a difficult year, and we were correct. The multiple agenda imposed on Brazil and Brazilian Basic Education amid a pandemic required effort, work, technical capacity, resilience, partnerships, and political articulation with key actors capable of meeting the year’s challenges. Features that
are normally prohibitively expensive for Todos Pela Educação and that, in 2021, proved to be even more critical for our struggles and accomplishments throughout the year.

We work for the resumption of classrooms with a rhythm and effectiveness capable of initiating the long process of learning recovery for millions of children and teenagers who were absent from the classrooms. As a result, it was critical to work with the Forum of Governors to expedite the vaccination of educators and ensure adequate measures for school reopening.

We also actively participate in the Public debate for the National Education System regulation, whose agenda made important advances in the National Congress in 2021 and will be one of the priorities for 2022. We mapped some of the best educational experiences promoted throughout Brazil, within the Educação Que
Dá Certo initiative; we systematically monitor data to evaluate policies and results, providing evidence and technical content to inform the educational debate.

We closed the year launching the debate foundations for the future, with the Educação Já 2022: a stimulus for discussion and the commitment of candidates, parties, and society to a robust and transformative agenda, to make quality public Education a major national priority. Guided once again by our priority agenda for Brazilian Education, the Educação Já! We started 2021 mobilizing majors for the Education structuring challenges.

These and many other initiatives and accomplishments - which reaffirm the foundations of Todo’s work - are detailed in this activity report, a lengthy list for which we can only thank the executive team, consultants, associates, maintainers, supporters, and partners:

Once again, thank you very much!

2022 will be a decisive year for Brazil. We count on you to show Brazil has a way, and the solution is Education.

April to June 2022

Education Now: a journey across Brazil on behalf of quality public basic education

The second quarter of All for Education was marked by the renewal of a political commitment for Education Now (Educação Já). A journey that gained strength in early April, with the Annual Meeting Education Now 2022, bringing together a broad front of political leaders, experts, public managers, educators and civil society organizations on behalf of the recovery of Brazilian Public Education in the face of the current serious context.

The journey continued throughout Brazil with the Education Now Caravans. It first landed in Vitória, Espírito Santo, and has already been to nine other states: Piauí, Rio de Janeiro, Goiás, Alagoas, Paraná, Bahia, Minas Gerais, and São Paulo. Until August, there will be 14 visits with an intense program of conversations with pre-candidates, the school community, specialists, managers, and opinion makers.

It is the vocalization and promotion of a commitment: the priority of Education in the elections and in the next administrations.

Check out what we did during the quarter below.


All For Education works to change the quality of Basic Education in Brazil for the better. With this goal in mind, it produces knowledge, compiles and analyzes data and information, publishes diagnoses and, based on technical and scientific evidence, formulates educational public policy proposals.



A technical note published on May 30 expressed concern about the approval by the House of Representatives of the Complementary Law Project no 18/2022, which changes the collection of the Value-Added Tax on Sales and Services (ICMS) on fuel and electricity in all Brazilian states. The change, if implemented the way it was presented, would significantly reduce the investment in Education, precisely at the most challenging time for the recovery of children's learning rights. After much debate and political articulation by "Todos Pela Educação" (All for Education), an amendment was approved to reduce the damage to Education, making the recomposition of the Fundeb resources and reducing the drop in resources in the area due to the effects of the proposal. However, the president of the Republic vetoed this mechanism, causing Brazilian education to lose billions of reais.

In numbers:

204 reports citing the technical note "New Fundeb advances at risk with project that alters ICMS


In June, we launched the second season of the Educação que Dá Certo audiovisual series, an initiative that maps, analyzes, and shares evidence-based educational policies adopted by different education systems in the country with a focus on improving basic education. We went after three states with successful and inspiring experiences to be replicated: Ceará, Espírito Santo and Pernambuco. In addition to the series, we have published complete studies on the networks, based on data analysis, research, and interviews with those who are part of this story.

>> The technical note "The advances of the New Fundeb are at risk with the project that alters the ICMS tax" is directly linked to the organizational goal of All to continue the projects that have already been consolidated and the high-impact fronts that began in 2021 and are directly related to the progress of Education Now. Education That Works" is part of the goal of implementing "Education Now 2022" in all its aspects - technical, political, and mobilization.



One of the missions of Todos is to mobilize and articulate with public authorities and key players to make our proposals and analyses reach decision makers and, at the same time, give a sense of urgency and importance to the Brazilian Basic Education agenda.



Leaders, educators, specialists - all gathered in an unprecedented meeting to debate the current challenges and the ways to move forward in Brazilian Basic Education at the Annual Meeting Education Now 2022: Renewing the Commitment. The spirit of urgency and the political need to renegotiate the commitment to Education and future generations, especially in an election year, in addition to the critical analysis of the pandemic period, were themes that permeated the meeting, which also honored and recognized, with the 1st All for Education Award, the work of people who contributed to Basic Education. See here the award winners.

In numbers:

354 people present at the Annual Meeting

6 pre-candidates for the Presidency of the Republic recorded videos with their proposals for Education, all shown at the Annual Meeting. Watch them here

183 press mentions mentioning the Meeting
12 million people reached by our social media



Since April, we have been going all over Brazil to mobilize in defense of the cause of Public Basic Education. The Education Now Caravans are an especially important journey at this decisive moment for the country, in a process of listening, dialoguing, and mobilizing pre-candidates, local leaders from various sectors, the school community, and opinion makers. Until the end of August, we will travel to these states: Pernambuco, Ceará, Maranhão, Pará, and Rio Grande do Sul.

I. Give (greater) knowledge to the main candidates of the states about the technical document of Education Now, in order to make it a reference for the construction of the government program and, mainly, for the eventual management;

II. Sensitize the local public debate to the Basic Education agenda, creating the basis for the mobilization to be sustained until the elections.

In numbers:

9 states visited

60 managers, pre-candidates, and political influencers that we talked to and received the Education Now document during these visits

90 students and 90 teachers impacted through the Voices at School meetings, held in public schools in each of the states

>> The Education Now Annual Meeting and the Caravans are directly linked to Todos's organizational goal of implementing Education Now 2022 in all its aspects - technical, political, and mobilization.



At Todos, our main work stream is monitoring education outcomes and implementation processes of education policies.


A survey commissioned from Datafolha, in a partnership between All for Education and Itaú Social, interviewed principals of Brazilian public elementary, middle and high schools. The data showed, for example, that according to the vast majority of professionals in this category, the predominant model for selecting principals is not ideal. Although more than half of the public school principals are appointed by appointment by the Secretary of Education, only 5% of them believe that this is the best way to choose principals. For 93% of those interviewed, the selection processes for school management should evaluate the technical competencies of the candidates. 

Access the complete survey here.



Todos has publicly positioned itself once again on homeschooling. Homeschooling is placed as one of the priority agendas of the current government. There were two relevant positions, dedicated to analyzing the theme and provoking a debate about the risks imposed on children and young people.

Homeschooling: mistaken measure and absolutely out of time

Home Education: approved project brings risks to children and young people and to Brazilian basic education

In numbers:

258 reports citing our positioning

>> The survey of school principals is directly linked to Todos's organizational goal of implementing "Education Now 2022" in all its aspects - technical/political and mobilization.



To prioritize and guide the debate about quality basic education in Brazil, we work to qualify the discussions on the subject and occupy spaces in the national and regional public debate.


The mobilization inaugurated at the Annual Meeting Education Now 2022 marked the invitation for the whole of Brazilian society to make a commitment to the quality of Brazilian public basic education. A mobilization that is already on the social networks, in the media, in meetings and debates promoted by Todos, involving specialists, political leaders, pre-candidates, businessmen, teachers, students, and representatives of civil society. Learn more about it. And on the official campaign website,, you can find materials to be part of this great mobilization that is just beginning!

2022: a year of decisive choices for the present and future of Brazilian Basic Education

At the beginning of this very decisive year for Brazil, All For Education makes a special invitation for 2022: to take advantage of the electoral debate and discuss the future of the country in depth - and for All For Education, there is only a promising future if we have quality basic education for all children and young people. This means debating and committing to a concrete agenda that reconciles structural challenges with emergency and long-term responses, including the effects of the pandemic in Education. 

For Todos, the bet for the future is this: Education Now 2022: contributions to the construction of a systemic agenda for Brazilian Basic Education.

Check out what we did in the first quarter.


We work to change the quality of Basic Education in Brazil and, to this end, we produce knowledge, compile and analyze data and information, make diagnoses, and, always based on evidence, formulate educational public policies. 


With the support of specialists and other civil society organizations, we have produced Educação Já 2022: contribuições para a construção de uma agenda sistêmica para a Educação Básica Brasileira. Sent to a wide range of political players, the document will be launched at the All for Education Annual Meeting, on April 26. The agenda includes recommendations for emergency actions, to mitigate the effects of the pandemic in Basic Education, and proposals for structural measures, articulated in a systemic way, to raise the quality of Basic Education and reduce inequalities in the country's educational systems. 

>> Education Now 2022 is directly linked to Todos's organizational goal of implementing "Education Now 2022" in all its aspects - technical, political, and mobilization.



One of the missions of Todos is to mobilize and articulate with the public authorities and key players the agenda of Brazilian Basic Education.


We have been all over the country, from north to south, raising the awareness of municipal public administrators about the importance of prioritizing Basic Education, with the Commitment to Education program. The first edition of the program, launched in 2021, came to an end in the first quarter of 2022, reaching its main goal: municipalities from all regions of Brazil engaged in an agenda that prioritizes Public Basic Education. In a satisfaction survey conducted by Todos, 97% of the participants said they would recommend the training to other public administrators. New waves of Commitment to Education are planned for the coming months, and efforts continue so that more municipalities can receive the Seal. 


In numbers:

- 290 municipalities received the Seal of Commitment to Education

- 23 Brazilian states reached


In March, the Senate ratified the beginning of a historic moment when it approved the Complementary Law Project that institutes the National Education System (SNE), the result of a long and deep debate over the past years among parliamentarians, educators, specialists, and civil society organizations such as All for Education. The SNE gives Brazil the tools to guarantee the right to quality public education for all.

Understand here the main changes brought by the SNE, which now needs to be approved by the House of Representatives.

>> The approval of the SNE is directly linked to Todos's organizational goal of continuing the projects already consolidated and the high-impact fronts started in 2021 and directly related to the advancement of Education Now.


We promote the monitoring of results and implementation processes of educational policies.


A technical note produced by Todos showed the size of the pandemic's impact on Brazilian public education. Produced based on the continuous Pnad from 2012 to 2021, the note recorded the 66.3% increase in the number of 6- and 7-year-old children who, according to their guardians, could not read and write. The number went from 1.4 million in 2019 to 2.4 million in 2021. The content was featured in the national and international press (see below).

Todos Pela Educação (Todos) celebrated its 15th anniversary in September: 15 years of studying educational public policies, defending, articulating and monitoring indicators and proposals. Always defending students and public schools. Together, we made gains for Brazilian Basic Education, but we still have a long way to go: we will continue steadfast, with you, until all children and young people have access to quality education, which is plural and decisive for their lives.

The third quarter of 2021 was crucial to building our future.

Check out what we did during this period.


Always important to emphasize, the public policy proposals we formulate at Todos Pela Educação (Todos), and suggest, are based on evidence, on data compiled, analyzed and used to develop diagnoses. All of our production aims to qualify the debate and support decision making in the different spheres of public power.



It is possible to have quality Basic Education for all Brazilian students. Believing in this, we have produced, with the support of specialists and third sector organizations, Education Now 2022: A Proposed Strategic Agenda For Brazilian Basic Education (Educação Já 2022: uma proposta de agenda estratégica para a Educação Básica brasileira). The document, released as a "version for debate," contains recommendations for actions that will need to be implemented by the government in an emergency manner, in order to mitigate the effects of the pandemic in Basic Education, as well as proposals for structural measures, articulated in a systemic manner, to raise the quality of Basic Education and reduce inequalities in the country's educational systems.

The document is directly linked to Todos's strategic objective of advancing Education Now!, with a focus on the technical production axis.


In recent months, we have witnessed the gradual reopening of schools in several states across the country. Therefore, in parallel with the advocacy for the safe resumption of classroom activities, we continue with articulations and initiatives that can impact the directions of Education in the short and medium terms.


See below the main actions in this area during the quarter:



We reached 1,391 of the Brazilian municipalities: more than 4,000 municipal managers guaranteed, through free registration, their participation in the Commitment to Education Program, led by “Todos” with the aim of encouraging municipalities to prioritize an agenda of structural changes in Education.

The initiative includes the signing of a letter of commitment to mark the municipal management's commitment to Education, the Education Now Municipalities Course, a 30-hour online training course for public managers, and the Seal of Commitment to Education, given to the municipalities that participated in the previous stages. A number of partnerships were established to expand and qualify the debate on educational policies and take the Commitment to Education Program to a large number of Brazilian cities.

Education Now Municipalities reaching municipalities and influencing their decision making. Managers and decision makers need access to accurate information and analysis. For this reason, we have released several documents and taken a position on key industry topics and events over the past few months.



Numerous education networks in the country have achieved significant educational results at the system level. In addition to showing that it is possible, these are efforts that illuminate paths. Mapping, analyzing and disseminating what lies behind these good examples of educational policies is the mission of the Education That Works (Educação que Dá Certo) initiative of Todos.

Based on interviews with multiple actors involved in each of the experiences and robust analysis of data and indicators, we developed technical documents and didactic materials to support the decision-making process of public managers and teams from the Secretariats throughout Brazil. The materials provide valuable inputs to inspire public managers, as they systematize solutions to challenges common to different public education networks, such as teacher training, pedagogical support to schools, pedagogical use of evaluations and much more. In the third quarter, we systematized municipal cases: Teresina (PI), Coruripe (AL), Londrina (PR) and São Paulo (SP). Get to know all of them in our platform launched in the last quarter of 2021.



Todos participated in a session in the Federal Senate dedicated to the debate on the National Education System (SNE). Among the proposals for regulation being discussed in the National Congress, there is PLP 235/2019, object of discussion at the event. Debated for almost one hundred years, the SNE is even more necessary at this time when we need to recover the damage caused to education by the pandemic.



25% of Brazilian municipalities are represented in the Education Already Municipalities Course



Held by Todos, in partnership with Editora Moderna, the Brazilian Yearbook of Basic Education reached its tenth edition in August as one of the main references when it comes to monitoring Education. The publication follows all stages, modalities and specificities of Brazilian Education: from Kindergarten to Post-graduation. It has established itself as a traditional consultation tool for journalists, researchers, public administrators and all those who wish to better understand the education scenario in Brazil.



The report aims to understand the factors that impacted the availability of resources and the budget execution of the Ministry of Education (MEC), with a focus on Basic Education. It is based on the bimonthly publications of the Ministry of Economy. In this issue, published in August, we present the analysis of the portfolio's budget execution for the first two bimesters of 2021, addressing the main effects of the delay of the LOA 2021 for Basic Education.



Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Brazil showed an important evolution in the percentage of students with adequate learning, especially in primary education. However, the levels still remain far below what is necessary to ensure the right to education for all, especially when we observe that the advances, in general, are not accompanied by a reduction in educational inequality. These are some of the main messages of the Report "Learning in Basic Education: details of the pre-pandemic context". The document presents a balance of learning through 2019 and identifies important advances, challenges and setbacks in educational outcomes, helping to understand under what context the Covid 19 pandemic impacted the lives of millions of students.



Todos produced and released a technical note to evaluate the presence of projects in Brazilian public schools about racism, sexism and homophobia, from 2011 to 2019. The data come from the questionnaire of the National System for Evaluation of Basic Education (Saeb) answered by school principals. The analysis shows that, in 2019, there was a reduction in the percentage of schools that declared to have projects on these themes.



More than 9,500 accesses to the content of the Yearbook

111 mentions in the press about the Yearbook

The reach of the Yearbook was 5.5 million in networks and online articles

The 2021 Yearbook is directly linked to the strategic objective of Todos in section (iii) of the public monitoring.


Check out some of our most important results of impact on the press. One of our priorities is to occupy spaces in the public sphere in order to prioritize and guide the debate on the importance and urgency of quality basic education in Brazil.





The long period of closed schools results in losses that go beyond learning, something that children and young people can carry throughout their lives depending on our response from now on. Priscila Cruz (Todos) spoke about this in “National Journal”.



The release of the Brazilian Yearbook of Education had great repercussion in the press, with articles published in the main vehicles of the country and also in the “National Journal”.



Exclusive with O Globo for Reomec disclosure - Resources set a side by the MEC for Basic Education fell 39.1 % in the first months of the year,says report



Todos is mapping cases that show that quality public education is possible in Brazil. A school in Rio de Janeiro managed to guarantee the total absence of school dropouts, even during the pandemic, and the initiative was highlighted on Globonews.

Jornal Hoje, on TV Globo, showed two cases, in São Paulo and Pernambuco, being examples in the fight against truancy and recovery of learning.



TV Globo's Fantástico addressed the Paulo Freire centennial and, among the tributes to the patron of Brazilian education, highlighted the post by Todos published on Twitter.



Report from Todos pointed out that 48% of Brazilian schools have projects to address ethnic-racial relations. Less than half of the schools have projects to discuss racism and other ethnic-racial relations. The space for combating sexism, homophobia and social inequalities is even smaller. These data were highlighted on CNN.



We published opinion articles in which we discussed the gradual, safe and effective resumption of classroom instruction throughout Brazil. The texts were published in News papers and portals from all regions of the country and reinforced the idea that it is necessary to go beyond the pure and simple reopening of schools and adopt essential premises both in school infrastructure and in the strategy for learning recovery.





Education needs all of us to take its place as a priority in Brazil. The call is urgent! And about this, Priscila Cruz (Todos) and João Pedrosa (teacher and presenter) talked in a live chat.



On the Day of Fight for People with Disabilities, Priscila Cruz, executive president of Todos, and Rodrigo Hübner Mendes, from Rodrigo Mendes Institute, debated about a quality and inclusive education. Check it out!





Olavo Nogueira Filho, executive director of Todos, was at the first Lives Stage of the Bett Brasil event. The theme of the meeting was: "Schools Reopen: How to Return Safely? He also participated in Education360. The debate had the following theme "Sharing lessons: what we know about the pandemic's impact on education", and featured Patrícia Mota Guedes, from Itaú Social. Priscila Cruz, our CEO, took part in the Education Summit Brazil 2021, in the panel "The impact of lost time". In the debate at Estadão newspaper, she dealt with the consequences of the pandemic.



The most highly rated deputies and senators Congress in Focus Award 2021 were released on October 21.

The special category Defense of Education is granted by Todos. The list was formed based on the affinity of the parliamentarians eligible for the general category of "Best in the House" and "Best in the Senate" with the topic. Legislative production, the presentation of proposals, participation in discussions, among other points, focused on the "promotion of an Inclusive and Quality Education" were evaluated. The main objectives of the award are to strengthen democracy, stimulate citizenship to evaluate the performance of deputies and senators and value those who best represent the population.

Since 2018, we have already received more than R$ 450,000.00.


Check out our numbers:

2018: R$ 50.352,98;

2019: R$ 133.311,03;

2020: R$ 155.750,22;

2021: R$ 112,268.39 (up to September 30).


Since August 2021, it is also possible to donate through purchases made on Ifood. Todos is the first and only organization focused on education on the app's donation platform. More than R$85,000.00 have been donated since the beginning of the partnership.





In August, we invited Toni Reis, CEO of the National LGBTI Alliance, to talk to the executive team about how to make schools more inclusive and tolerant of the LGBTQIA+ community. The meeting was organized by the Committee of Diversities of Todos, a group of employees whose goal is to propose strategies and actions to give visibility to and expand the diversity and acceptance of diversity in the composition of the executive team and members.



We have a new face! And it's not just in appearance, as we have restructured the information and materials on our institutional website. In order to mark a new stage in Todos's strategic actions, we launched our new website, a strategic tool for the dissemination of knowledge and advocacy for Public Basic Education.

2nd Quarter 2021 Report

Check out what we did together this quarter.

Drawing attention to the brutal impacts and creating a sense of urgency for a safe and effective return to in-person classes was (and will remain) in the center of our attention.

After nearly a year and a half of schools closed because of the Covid-19 pandemic, 22 states finally decided to resume in-person classes last quarter. Still, Brazil is one of the world record holders for closed school days. The damage is not just for learning. The impact, as we have highlighted, is most cruel for the poorest families. In this scenario, producing knowledge, mobilizing, monitoring is critical. It's crucial. And for that, we seek to occupy spaces and raise debates with the widest possible spectrum of actors, always with the urgency that the moment imposes on the scenario of Basic Education in Brazil.

We participated in a meeting with governors, managers and entities to strengthen a national pact for a gradual, safe and effective return. We also built training, articulation and advocacy initiatives to improve the quality of Public Basic Education, with the support of important partners. We monitored the progress of vaccination among professionals in the education sector, the positioning of decision makers in the debate on safe return to school - themes that were at the center of the agenda along with issues on budget, homeschooling, internet access and the lack of a centralized articulation and able to move us forward.

We work with governors, managers and entities to strengthen a national pact for a gradual, safe and effective return to classes. Our launch of the Commitment to Education Program, among other objectives, aims to support municipal managers in resuming classroom classes and strengthening the educational system in the post-pandemic period. In addition, we released the unpublished report with the OECD, which, among other issues, drew attention to the brutal impacts of the pandemic and the need for a corresponding response.

Our mission is to change change for real the quality of Basic Education in Brazil, and for this we produce knowledge, compile and analyze data and information, make diagnoses, and, always based on evidence, formulate public educational policies. In recent months, we have consolidated and published guiding reports that elucidate and present paths for Basic Education in Brazil.


We launched with D3E (Data for a Democratic Debate in Education) and the Transformative Learning Technology Laboratory, at Columbia University (USA), the study “Technologies for an education with equity”. The study uses the guidelines of Educação Já! to recommend a new strategy for the use of technologies in Brazilian Education. Four areas are deepened throughout the document: the definition of a national strategy, the training of people, educational data and inputs. The Covid-19 pandemic has made an in-depth debate about the role of technology in Education even more urgent. And the report shows how pedagogical practices with technological support go beyond remote learning. So that Brazil is prepared to deal both with emergencies and with everyday life, the publication emphasizes the urgency of this debate so that it reaches a national level strategy providing a broad, participatory, democratic and scientific knowledge-based educational technology.


The OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), with technical support from Todos Pela Educação, produced the report Education in Brazil: an International Perspective, which provides a detailed analysis of the performance of the Brazilian educational system in relation to comparatively relevant countries, including those of Latin America. The document also proposed ten steps for the country to improve the quality and equity of educational outcomes.


In order for Brazil to have a National Education System, we developed the Technical Note that defends the system and brings essential points to your institution. The Technical Note brings guiding dimensions for the proceedings in the National Congress, in order to qualify the debate on the regulation of the (SNE).

In order to support managers and decision makers with accurate information and analyses, we publish several documents and take a stand on key issues and events in the sector over the past few months.

We release a preliminary analysis of the approval of the Annual Budget Law, the LOA, for 2021. In it, we point out that without consolidated data it is not feasible to talk about cuts or increases for Basic Education, but if the National Congress approves non-compliance with the Golden Rule, there would be a readjustment of 1.7% in the MEC budget compared to 2020 – indicating a real decrease in the budget when corrected for inflation.

Occupying spaces in the public sphere in order to prioritize the debate about the importance and urgency of quality Basic Education in Brazil is one of the focuses of our work.


We inaugurated our monthly column on Poder 360! With the article by our executive president Priscila Cruz about the governors' pact for the return to in-person classes.


The survey by Todos, FGV e Movimento Collabora on the urgency of creating a National Education System was cited in a column by journalist Renata Cafardo at Estadão.


The joint initiative of Todos and Human Rights Watch on the failure of the Brazilian government to respond to the educational emergency in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic had great repercussions.


An article by TLTL, a laboratory at Columbia University, on the study “Technologies for an Education with equity: a new horizon for Brazil”, produced with the support of Todos, was featured in Nexus.


Olavo Nogueira Filho, executive director of Todos, spoke to G1 about the report produced by the OECD with the support of Todos: “Brazil will have serious difficulties in moving forward if it does not shed light on inequality in Education”.

In recent months, we have witnessed the aggravation of the already known and debated challenges for educational management brought about by the pandemic. The lack of coordination on the part of the public administration and the delay in combating the direct and indirect effects of the crisis further reinforce the need for mobilization and action on the part of civil society.


Therefore, in a webinar, we launched the Legislative Agenda, a document with recommendations on what should be at the center of attention of the National Legislative in 2021, so that Congress can contribute decisively to the present and future of Education Brazilian basic. A combination of urgent and structuring agendas to help qualify the debate and encourage parliamentarians to discuss and advance what evidence shows to be a priority for the Country in Education.


Todos Pela Educação and Fundação Getúlio Vargas together held the Management and Public Policies in Education Course, focusing on parliamentary advisors from the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate.


In partnership with party foundations and municipal entities from all over Brazil, Todos launched the Commitment to Education Program, a supra-party initiative, focused on disseminating “Educação Já Municipalities”.


We also participate in LIVE Educação Já! And for everyone!, who dealt with equity on Education Day, alongside Italo Dutra, head of Education at UNICEF in Brazil.


Finally, we launched the Educação Já Municipalities Course, in which municipal managers can guarantee their participation free of charge. The training offers technical support for the construction of a plan to reopen the schools, in parallel with the structuring of a quality educational system in the municipality. In addition, it will present inputs that will help managers to organize a work plan for the Departments of Education. Those who complete all the steps will be awarded the “Commitment to Education Seal”. The project is part of the Commitment to Education Program.


We got top marks and received the Doar A+ seal, provided by Instituto Doar to highlight civil society organizations that work with professionalism and transparency.

From the door in:


We made the implementation of the workplace, a transformation in the way we communicate internally that aims to get everyone together and connected! With this, we gain a common online environment, effective and affectionate, which respects and does not invade the personal lives of employees.


To keep our team engaged, the Diversity Committee provided the team with a Think Olga / Think Eva training on “Unconscious Biases”. It was an enlightening moment, in which we dealt with important themes such as machismo, capacitance and homophobia. Change starts from within!

Thank you very much!
