Whose responsibility? An analysis of the perspectives for the educational responsibility law, foreword in the National Education Plan


The promotion of a minimum standard of quality for public basic education should be the main goal for the elaboration of the legislation on educational responsibility, contemplating the way of organizing, structuring and disciplining the Public Administration, aimed at the achievement of efficiency in the provision of the public service. The National Education Plan (PNE) does not link the financing of education with the attainment of performance targets, due to the very fundamental right to education, not allowing legislative or factico-budgetary backsliding. Therefore, an eventual Educational Responsibility Law (LRE) should focus on articulating political, financial, administrative, technological, organizational and pedagogical elements for the promotion of public basic education with a minimum standard of quality, moving away from the punitive emphasis as a vector of transformation.
