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).

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).

"Brazil is facing a learning crisis" and "there are still many concerns about the quality of education and the relevance of the skills that students are acquiring", warns the World Bank's work for Brazil (Skills and Jobs: An Agenda for Youth).

With impressive basic education network’s numbers (184,100 schools of basic education, 80% of which public, a total of 48.6 million enrollments, in which 82% are at public education, and 2.2 million teachers), the latest School Sense (2017) showed that Brazil still have 2.5 million children and youngsters not enrolled in schools.

According to the National Literacy Assessment (ANA), released by the Ministry of Education (MEC) in October 2017, more than half of the students in the 3rd year of elementary school have insufficient level in reading and mathematics tests. And even worse, according to MEC, the rate of students with insufficient reading is 54.73% (insufficient level indicates that students cannot identify the purpose of a text and locate explicit information). In writing, 34% of the students are at the worst level, not being able to write the words alphabetically and producing illegible texts.

We need to mobilize! We need Education Now!

WHAT HAVE WE DONE?

Engaged leaders and influencers, begin to promote and raise the awareness of their networks about the importance of quality Basic Education in Brazilian. At least 8 events, over the course of this year, will put education on the agenda. And more importantly, the events will be, in addition to presentations and discussions’ platforms, a recognition way of good practices.

In this election’s year, we should be all together for one objective: to make quality basic education a priority on the political agenda. It is strategic that education become the plan and priority of governments

HOW HAVE WE DONE?

Our efforts are centered on the engagement of politicians and candidates in the cause, in a non-partisan way as Todos have always done.

Among our works are:

• Broadening the debate on Education: we intensified the communication’s actions from January 2018.

• Make quality materials on Education: including editorial projects for the entire year.

• Propose improvement in the management and financing of Education: in conjunction with experts, funding proposals in order to give more to States, Municipalities and Schools that have less.

• Bring together people in favor of educational transformation: we bring together a group of experts and technicians to discuss and propose measures that guide education policy.

• Focus on the teaching profession: Construction of the  Teacher Profession’s agenda, including specialists, teachers, managers and other civil society organizations, to think about the attractiveness of the teaching career, working conditions and initial and continuing training of our future and current teachers .

 

If it depends on Todos Pela Educação, 2018 will be a great year for the Brazilian Basic Education.

Let's go, together?

 

Be, you too, part of Todos Pela Educação (All for Education)

Thank you!
