Elementary Education Versus Illiteracy in Brazil

by Dalilla C. Sperb - 1956

The present situation in our elementary schools is acute. While our upper and middle classes have finally reached fuller understanding of the benefits of education and demand better schools for their children, there is the shortage of classrooms and of teachers. While our federal and state governments understand the "must" of educational equality as a basis of progress, the monster of inflation threatens the nation in many ways. We know that we have advanced many steps, that we have reached a transition period in our elementary school system, and we must believe that the transition will lead to more and better schools. Paramount here are such assets as democracy, religious freedom, and no segregation problem. We have faith in a better development of our elementary school system. We are anxious to see the final victory of the elementary school in its fight with illiteracy, and we are confident that such a day will come.
