Sport as an educational support: an analysis of the VIES Project


This article aims to diagnose the academic performance of students from municipal public schools who participated in the Vilas Olímpicas e Escolas Project (VIES). The sample consisted of 1,118 students from 30 schools participating in the VIES. We analyzed the information in the monthly reports of the social organizations responsible for the management contractors of Vilas Olímpicas and cross-referenced it with the school performance indicators. We compared the bimonthly academic performance between the VIES and non-VIES students from the entire municipal network. The preliminary analysis found that the students monitored by the VIES had a higher average school performance than the group that did not perform systematic activities in the sports center of the city of Rio de Janeiro.
