O education Minister
, Camilo Santana
(PT), said that President Luiz Inácio Lula
da Silva ( PT
) will report an increase in the budget of federal institutes and universities. The speech was given this Friday (24th) during a visit to Unifesp (Federal University of São Paulo) works at the Osasco campus, in Greater São Paulo.
In conversations with journalists, Camilo revealed that Lula will talk about the recomposition “soon”. The idea is to have a different attitude from what has been happening in recent years, in which federal universities have seen their budgets drastically reduced because of cuts by the Temer and Bolsonaro governments.
The current management of the federal government met with Andifes (association of presidents of federal universities) to discuss various issues related to education. It was decided that the MEC would make the readjustments, in addition to releasing funds requested by Unifesp.
“Soon the President of the Republic, President Lula, who insists on this, will be announcing all the resources for budget recomposition”, said Camilo Santana, Minister of Education.
Camilo Santana and Tarcisio de Freitas
The Minister of Education traveled to São Paulo in order to fulfill his agenda. He met with Tarcísio de Freitas (Republicans) to discuss collaborative actions to strengthen the educational area.
“Today our work agenda is in São Paulo. Early in the morning, I met with the governor of the state, Tarcísio de Freitas, in his office at Palácio dos Bandeirantes. We debate educational issues relevant to the people of São Paulo. As I have said, the MEC keeps its doors open to dialogue and strengthen the collaboration regime with Brazilian states and municipalities. This is the way to rebuild Education in our country”, wrote Camilo on social networks.
