Governor João Doria (PSDB) launched, at a press conference this Thursday (19), the Bolsa do Povo Education, aimed at public school students in vulnerable situations. The action provides for the payment of a R$1,000 scholarship per academic year to avoid school evasion.
The state government of São Paulo will invest R$ 100 million this year and another R$ 300 million in 2021 to serve 267,000 students classified on the lines of poverty (monthly salary per capita below RS$ 246) and extreme poverty (monthly salary per capital below R$151).

The focus of the program is high school students, but public school students in the 9th grade of elementary school will also be able to apply for the scholarship. The incentive to avoid dropping out of schools is linked to participation in learning assessments, attendance of 80% in classes and dedication of 2-3 hours of study in the SP Media Center (CMSP) application.
“I want to confirm the importance of this initiative to fight school dropout. Five million children left school in 2020 in Brazil. This is a desert for the future of Brazil. People without education don’t react, they become dependent. And that’s what we don’t want. We want children and young people who, through education, have the opportunity to live better”, declared Doria.
The program is an arm of Bolsa Povo Educação, announced in July, which pays R$ 500 per month to 20,000 parents of public school students who will work four hours a day in state schools to promote participation and the so-called active search , in which teachers go to students’ homes to bring them back to school.
