Bring Quality Education to 50MM Brazilian Children

In the last report, you could see that Todos Pela Educação (All For Education - Todos) began the year 2019 with a total focus on its four pillars of action. Todos put Basic Quality Education on the agenda through the production of a great seminar. Produced technical knowledge detailing Educação Já (Education Já!). Articulated with public power and a wide range of third sector organizations to present Todos’ studies to public managers and parliamentarians. And enhanced public monitoring with the disclosure of Todos’ Goal 3 data.

In the second quarter it was no different. Todos started April with a great novelty: we supported the launch of the Joint Parliamentary Front of Education (Frente Parlamentar Mista da Educação), a group composed of 301 deputies and 38 senators with the commitment to advance Basic Education public policies highly aligned with the real needs of Brazilian Education. Todos will be part of Joint Front’s advisory board. One detail that makes all the difference: the initiative is subdivided into thematic commissions focused on issues that determine the quality and equity of education, most of them aligned with the seven priorities indicated in the Educação Já’s (Education Now!) document.

At the end of April, we launched the #EducationMudaTudo (#EducationChagesEverythig) campaign. It is an initiative that is at the same time an action to give transparency to the impact of Education in other social areas, such as health, safety and economy, and an invitation to people and institutions to mobilize in favor of education.

In May, Todos Pela Educação was invite to talk at various events, and was part of several meetings, to present the proposal Todos lead and built for a more equitable and redistributive financing of Brazilian Basic Education. One of the main meetings was with the National Education Council, a collegial body that assists the Ministry of Education in formulating and evaluating national policies in the area, focusing on compliance with legislation and quality.

The highlight of June was the launch of the Brazilian Yearbook of Basic Education 2019, published in partnership by Todos and Editora Moderna. The book brings more than 200 charts and tables with educational indicators and still unpublished analyzes based on the agenda of proposals formulated in the framework of Education Now !.

We arrived in the middle of 2019. With your help, we have already added countless achievements. We are united in the challenge of guaranteeing a Basic Education with quality and equity for all the children and youths of Brazil.

All together we go far!

First quarter of 2019: together we have done a lot for Education!

In the last report (Jan 19), you could see that the year of 2018 was a year of many achievements for Todos Pela Educação (All For Education – Todos). To build up Educação Já! (Education Now!), an initiative with strategies to implement structuring changes in the Brazilian Basic Education, coordinated by a diverse and supra-party group of experts, was a step forward!

We entered in 2019 with the precise focus: to advance the agenda of Education Now! In this first quarter, we have been massively transferring our knowledge to representatives of public power, in addition to monitoring the indicators that attest to the learning of Brazilian students. Without leaving aside, of course, the engagement of key actors of society in favor of transformative changes in Basic Education.

Early in the year, we held talks with the Executive and Basic Education Departments of the Ministry of Education. Introducing the Education Now!, and the developments of each of the seven priority measures seeking a qualitative leap on Brazilian Basic Education.

In this sense, we also met with parliamentarians and municipal managers of Education, in addition to drafting a bill that regulates funding for more redistributive and quality-inducing education.

In February, in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV), we brought together the most renowned national and international specialists in education to discuss the first steps to implement public policy’s priorities for advancing the subject area. The International Seminar “Education Now! - Priorities for Basic Education and the challenges of implementation” was a success, the audience was full of influential people on the subject and had a great media repercussion.

March’s highlight was the monitoring of our Goal 3 - every student with appropriate learning to its age and school year. The analysis of the data revealed that there are consistent advances in the initial stage of elementary education, but that the general learning scenario remains critical.

As information, Todos Pela Educacao, at its foundation in 2006 defined five goals to achieve quality and equity education.
1. Every kid and youth between 4 and 17 must be at school;
2. Every child fully literate by the age of 8;
3. Every student with appropriate learning to their age and school year;
4. Students to complete high school by the age of 19;
5. Expanded and well managed education funding.

The first quarter of 2019 is over. We still have many months ahead untill the end of the year, and a challenge as big as Brazil: guarantee a Basic Education with quality and equity for every children and young people of the Country.

All together we go far! Todos Pela Educacao!

Dialogues #EDUCAÇÃO JÁ! performed and technical document ready!

We always reinforce that EDUCAÇÃO JÁ! (EDUCATION NOW!) is a plural and supra-partisan initiative, led by Todos Pela Educação (All for Education), which brings together specialists, movements and institutions committed to contributing to implement a set of urgent and structuring measures to the coming governments that are capable of promoting a quality leap in Brazilian Basic Education

EDUCAÇÃO JÁ! is based on three pillars:

Technical: The technical document, available on the website (https://www.todospelaeducacao.org.br/pag/iniciativa-educacao-ja), is ready and made available to the public. With focus on Federal Government, the document brings the context of Basic Education in Brazil, a diagnosis of educational policies, and, finally, list medium and long-term measures that would make possible the long-awaited jump in the quality of Brazilian Basic Education. It highlights a set of 7 priority measures to be implemented already in the next government.

A highly accredited group participated in the technical elaboration of this document (the group met 6 times, from January to June). The document also received more than 30 contributions from various professionals and experts.

Articulation: In August, Todos Pela Educação received at its headquarters in São Paulo four candidates for the Presidency of the Republic to discuss the challenges of Basic Education in Brazil. In a series of meetings held in partnership with the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo (SP), they revealed to voters what they plan to prioritize in the area if they win the coming electoral race. (https://www.todospelaeducacao.org.br/conteudo/dialogos-educacaoo-ja-tudo-que-rolou-em-quatro-encontros-com-presidenciaveis).

Communication: In addition to the unprecedented series of dialogs on Basic Education, along with the main candidates for the Presidency of the Republic, in partnership with Folha de S. Paulo, Todos Pela Educação mobilized to help more than 100 journalists on Education, focusing on electoral coverage, with highlight to TV Globo, Band, CBN, UOL and O Povo (CE). In addition Todos Pela Educação prioritize incidence along strategic vehicles for prioritization of Education in the electoral coverage, with spaces conquered in vehicles of relevance. Without saying that Todos held strategic events that placed Education at the center of the country's strategic debate, such as the Exame Forum (Abril Group), and E Agora Brasil? (O Globo / Valor), Reconstruction of Brazil (O Estado de S. Paulo), among others.

Opportunity for systemic changes:

2019, due to the October national elections, will be a year of structural change opportunities in the country - among them, to transform the Basic Education scenario positively - since the beginning of new mandates brings significant opportunities for the implementation of structural changes.

While we do not prioritize quality basic education with equity, the crises we constantly see in Brazil will continue to repeat themselves. Although Education is not able to solve all of our problems, without it we will not be able to advance - education is a key element to propel the country to the height of the protagonism that Brazil should have. It is the most powerful tool to promote opportunities for citizens. The gains are collective, and individual.

Today the scenario of Education in Brazil is critical. We are experiencing a crisis of learning - there is a serious scenario of stagnation of Basic Education in Brazil. We are not making progress in expanding access at the necessary speed - we still have about 370,000 children aged 4 and 5, and 903,000 young people aged 15 to 17 out of school (PnadC 2017), and these age groups should already have the universalized access in 2016. By 2015 (PNAD / Todos Pela Educação), only 58.5% of young people have completed high school until the age of 19. In public schools, only half of the children are literate at the end of the 3rd year of primary school (ANA 2016), and at the end of secondary school, only 22% of students know the basics of Portuguese and only 4% of mathematics (Saeb / Todos Pela Educação).

# EDUCATION NOW!
# EDUCAÇÃO JÁ!

Be you too for Quality Education!

Thank you!

Team Todos Pela Educação

Educação Já (Education Now) has already taken body and strength!

 

A plural and supra party initiative, led by Todos Para la Educação, which brings together specialists, movements and institutions committed to contributing to the coming governments to implement a set of urgent measures that are capable of promoting a quality leap in Brazilian Basic Education.

This strategic plan to effect structural changes in Brazilian Basic Education is being developed, with a plural and supra party group of specialists in Education, and will be presented to the general public very soon.

 

Educação Já is based on three pillars:

Technical: it includes the elaboration of a plan for Public Basic Education, with the objective that the next rulers have at their disposal detailed diagnoses and proposals based on evidences and successful experiences at the international and national level.

The plan presents a long-term vision, guidelines for the national and state agenda, and agenda of the first 100 days, for the federal government. This technical agenda will be released in August.

Articulation: actions so that all candidates know in advance and prioritize these measures, if elected. This work is done in direct contact with the candidates and placing Education as a priority in various groups and sectors - not just another topic on the social investment agenda.

Communication: aims to position Education as a de facto priority for society, fostering the demand for concrete improvements.

The proposal presents 12 medium-long-term guidelines and 7 urgent measures, which should be a priority in the next federal administration.

 

2019 is a great opportunity to embark on structuring changes in the Country - among them, to positively transform the Education scenario. The critical period for which Brazil passes, opens the way for a re-discussion of national priorities and provides the opportunity to advance in an agenda of reforms and transformative measures in which educational policies need to be inserted. This becomes even more important with the approaching elections, as the commencement of new mandates usually brings significant opportunities for the implementation of structuring changes.

Until we actually prioritize Education, crises will continue to recur - our many crises in the economy, health and safety show that there is a missing element that complements the country's priority package.

 

Even if education is not capable of solving all our problems, without it we will not be able to move forward - education is a key element to boost the country to the height of the protagonism that should have. It is the most powerful tool to promote opportunities to citizens. The gains are collective and individual.

Today the scenario of Education in Brazil is critical. We are experiencing a crisis of learning - there is a serious scenario of stagnation of Basic Education in Brazil. We are not making progress in expanding access at the necessary speed - we still have about 440,000 4 and 5 year olds and 1.2 million youngsters aged 15 to 17 out of school (PnadC 2017). universalized access by 2016. By 2015 (Pnad / Todos Pela Educação – All For Education), only 58.5% of young people finished high school until the age of 19. In public schools, only half of the children are literate at the end of the 3rd year of primary school (ANA 2016), and at the end of secondary school, only 22% of students know the basics of Portuguese and only 4% of mathematics (Saeb / Todos Pela Educação - All For Education).
