Education Minister Kiuri Krista was in São Paulo with the delegation of the Ministry of Education of Finland and was received by the Secretary of Education of São Paulo Mr. Herman Voorwald on October, 31th. During the visit, some projects of the Department of Education have been presented. The meeting also aimed to strengthen the relationship between the two countries and pave the way for future partnerships in education what I believe that it would be a great opportunity to the ENO Programme.
I went to Sao Paulo to participate in the Seminar where Krista Kiuru minister emphasized two aspects that contributed to the success of the Finnish education: excellent teachers and equality in the provision of free public education quality. I believe that Brazil is still far from a model where the teacher's work is recognized and respected.
