Read an article in magazine Época , day of the November 7, 2011, page 74, Brazil, while waiting my turn at the dentist.

Now I read the stories with the block on the side and make notes about what I think is relevant to the development conference. I reflect.

The story was about a great woman, educator Wanda Engel recently invited by Hillary Clinton to join the group of women. It will make the difference for sure and will add value to the process of thinking evolção women in our country.

For years we see with our eyes what she looks experts in the field. The Extent to Which our youth are the result of an educational and social neglect.

In 1980, Mrs. Wanda Engel was part of the Secretariat of Social Assistance of the then President of Brazil Fernando Henrique Cardoso. Tvive the Opportunity to Attend an event showcasing the work of the NGO works with That Minor Seventh Crusade Regional Coordination Jacarepaguá. There I met Wanda and we talk for a short time.

She was the inspiration for the Family Grant program.

That this report Wanda expose any asset invested in down the drain When young people fail to complete Their schooling.

97% of Brazilian children to enter school;
50% of young people Between 15 and 17 are in high school and has good performance and only 25% manage to complete the course.

The causes for this reality permeates the training of teachers from Their social condition.

Brazil Loses the year an average of 70 000 young people, Whether or Accidents due to violence. According to the report in 2009 Were 130,000 young people killed. Most poor youth die before age 20.

"In this way Brazil Loses 2.8 million per year from years of work of These people throw away the trash and your greatest asset, human resources."

The Biggest mobilization of Our Country Should Be in Improving education, but I realize That the system of health, education, social and Also Fail to perform the great demand, because of a bad technical training and a social policy pedagogical short of global technological advancement.

Who do you trust?

For years the system of patronage, the domain of power for the benefit of family roots, the monopoly of states, communities in the country was enshrined.

The colonized kings who left traces of Their greed and slavery in lands Tupiniquins.

Some Politicians are serious embrelham desenvolvimeto the just causes in the country, others wear the mask of good factor and is unmasked by the media and so the years go by and more young people die or to Remain in School absorb with content and are prepared for servitude to continues the cycle of sameness.

It Would Be Necessary to empower educators.The value of a teacher Exceeds the educational content. You need to use philosophical reasoning questioning ethics, Duties, values. The FACT forgotten by the turn on the television where we see people who Should have the face of Responsibility and respect with the job position Being unmasked. The shame.

These Should Be handpicked professionals. Valued worthy of pay. Keeping the learning worthy of the Responsibility They hold.

The government is weakened by the choices and agreements poliíticas That Are Submitted and That have the ills of the colonial period of Brazil and dictatorship. It Is Difficult to change the vices of power.

When will the Fact That Brazil is a free country? Worthy of the Population of warriors who support the functional pyramid of commitment to the nation.

Woe to us if They Were not ordinary people of our country? Citizens of goods. Beyond the corrupt power, make it worth the Brazilian Constitution and the first commandment in the Law of God. Love your neighbor as yourself.
