Corruption is, together with the violence, the theme of the moment in Brazil. It influences virtually all aspects of the life of the brazilian. The (lack) of education is one of the factors that make the perception of violence increase. I sincerely hope that the elections this year can help Brazil to be followed by a course better.
Two of the major problems faced by Brazil, the corruption and violence, are directly linked to the low quality of education, in the opinion of 77% of the brazilian population. It is what reveals a survey by the National Confederation of Industry (CNI), in partnership with the All For Education.
According to the balance sheet, the higher the level of education of respondents, the greater the perception on the relationship between education and the levels of violence. People with at least the fourth complete series, for example, represent 71% of those who believe in the connection of the two aspects. This index rises to 82% when the question is made for those who have higher education.
For the projects coordinator of the All For Education, Vanessa Souto, this conviction of the brazilians refer to the fact that, with an increase in the quality of school education and a greater commitment of teaching institutions would diminish the space for violence.
“People understand that a quality education brings greater opportunities to these children and young people. So, a good quality education enables children and young people, when they come out of school, are with adequate learning, realize their life projects. This certainly helps to reduce the issue of violence, because more people would be employed, more people will have increased income,” says the expert.
The balance sheet also points out that six out of ten brazilians agree fully or partially that the corruption in Brazil stems from the lack of structure in education.
In the evaluation of the director general of Senai, Rafael Lucchesi, the brazilians attribute this connection to a lack of management commitment and must leave, mainly, of the rulers.
“The population has a clear perception that there is management problem in the school. So, the problem is not only the rental. It is, above all, to better manage the resources that are today allocated. Certainly, this is associated with a perception of a poor administration of the school and of the corruption that exists on the machine the brazilian public, which is domain wide,” he says.
Lucchesi also highlights that, for the population, the improvements in the quality of education would come up with a better management of the school, with the appreciation of the teacher, a more careful with student learning and more attention with the confirmation of citizenship.
The balance sheet disclosed also shows that, in four years, the dissatisfaction with education in the country has increased. In relation to the public schools, about 26% of the respondents consider teaching at the middle level as bad or very bad. Mr Caio Narcio (PSDB-MG), the holder of the Education Committee in the Chamber of Deputies believes that the scenario could be another if the teachers were more valued.
“There is no education without teachers motivated. They are teachers who usually teach for a vocation, do it with a lot of effort and dedication, but who are poorly paid,” says the congressman.
The research done by CNI, along with the All For Education was carried out by Ibope Intelligence. The interviewees were heard between the 15th and the 20th of September 2017, in 126 municipalities.
