Reforming the High School Reform: Discussions on the New Proposal by the Federal Government
One of the current hottest debates in Brazilian basic education revolves around the new High School model ('Novo Ensino Médio'). Just a month ago, the Federal Government submitted a Bill to Congress proposing substantial changes to the model approved in 2017, which is being implemented in Brazilian schools. Congress has ~100 days to vote on the matter, in what will likely be 'the reform of the high school reform'. Legislative discussions are already underway, with room for contributions from various societal actors (e.g., academia, civil society). In this context, the seminar will present an overview of this discussion, including: the context of the original reform and what it proposed, the challenges that have arisen, the debate that occurred in 2023, and the new proposal from the Federal Government. The aim is to bring all participants up to speed on this debate and, more importantly, to foster a discussion from different perspectives that the participants may bring.
