In São Paulo, according to Sinpro-SP (the union of private school teachers), at least 25 schools will have their activities altered or interrupted by the demonstrations organized by student and educator associations.
Among those who had the support of some of the groups are traditional schools in the capital, such as Santa Cruz, Vera Cruz, Oswald de Andrade, Equipe, São Domingos, and the School of Vila and Gracinha.
The strike was called after the announcement by the Education Ministry of the blockage of 30 percent of the budget for federal universities on basic education and cutting of research scholarships.
It is also against the attacks that were made by Minister Abraham Weintraub against universities and humanities courses. He is also against projects such as Unaffiliated School.
Parents, students, and professors of dozens of private schools across the country decided to support the strike this Wednesday, May 15th, in defense of education.
