Educating for politics

Finland recently published modifications in the structure of public schools. One of the changes was to put an end to the structure of « disciplines », the result of an intense discussion on the long term education of students. Either radical or not the decision, it is important to preserve the critics on the current model of Education, at least in the Brazilian case. The Brazilian model, governed by strict rules of the field of education hinders the humanistic and pluralistic method of learning, instead, there is an excessive concern with the technical training of the student, with the aim to prepare them to evaluation tests (such as FUVEST) for university access.

Ética, Educação e Cidadania: Reassumindo o mundo

When there is a lack of ethics, corruption, usually politicians are blamed, when there is a lack of education, usually the parents, the school and the teachers are blamed, and when there is a lack of citizenship, it seems that it is the fault of the alien, the other, that does not know how to behave here. We will see that these preconceptions lead us to the path of the self exempt responsibility. Ethics, education and citizenship have in common: prepare us for action. On the one hand, these are topics of easy and recurrent communication, on the other hand, they are matters of grave, complex and difficult attitude. Compulsory in the curriculum of life, ethics, education and citizenship are everyone’s responsibility, and also result from the past decisions from those who are already dead. It is necessary to reassume the world.
