In January 2020 it was inconceivable that Brazilian children and youth would be away from school for so long.
Throughout the year, there were many losses. Loss of learning, bonds, development, of lives. We took a deep breath and we confronted it. And we can safely say that the involvement of Todos Pela Educação was decisive.
Guided by our main and technical agenda for Brazilian Education – Education Now! (Educação Já!) – we have adapted the action plan for 2020 to the new and unexpected context.
We reacted quickly to the challenges posed by the pandemic on Education, at the same time, we played an important role in the advancement of ongoing structuring policies.
One of them, the top highlight of the year, was the approval, during the National Congress, of the New Fundeb (Fund for the Maintenance and Development for the Basic Education), the main Education resource distribution mechanism. A permanent, larger, more redistributive Fundeb, with greater allocative efficiency was approved, aligned with the proposal prepared by Todos Pela Educação. It took years of debates, studies, preparation of models and simulations, as well as countless implementations for this to become a reality. In the report, we describe in detail the course we have taken up to this milestone.
Regarding the effects of the pandemic on Education, the role of Todos Pela Educação was to support administrators, teachers, and families. We have analyzed the experiences from other school closure situations in Brazil and throughout the world, for the preparation of technical notes that were the basis for discussions and implementations of new standards. As a result, Education secretariats from all over the country could count on clear evidences and recommendations to promote distance teaching in Basic Education and to carry out the planning for the return to face-to-face classes.
In 2020, we also started monitoring the advancements of educational policies advocated by Todos, with the 1st Education Now! Annual Monitoring Report, in addition to having expanded the Education Now! Platform with Educação Já Municipios (Education Now for Municipalities). And, of course, many other actions of political organization, communication, mobilization and strengthening of coalitions. All well described in detail in this activity report.
To the executive team, advisors, associates, to the sponsoring institutions, supporting institutions, to the partners: thank you very much!
2021 is showing not to be easier. We continue to count on all of you.
