Brazil: Thousands protest against planned education cuts in Sao Paulo

Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Sao Paulo on Thursday, during a national day of protest against President Jair Bolsonaro's government planned cuts to federal universities. Earlier in May, Brazilian far-right's government announced a 30 per cent cut to the funding of federal universities. The decision was strongly criticised by many top education officers, who claimed that it would... Еще put at risk public university and therefore access to higher education for young people. The government is also planning to withdraw financial support from the human sciences and prioritise areas such as veterinary, engineering and medicine, which, in Bolsonaro's words, can generate immediate return to the taxpayers.
