Tarcísio wants to intern homeless people in "rural schools"

247 – The governor of São Paulo state, Tarcísio de Freitas (Republicans), intends to create rural schools to accommodate homeless people and drug addicts in a boarding school format. The measure was officialized in the State Official Gazette on Thursday (3). A technical committee will select the consultant responsible for the proposal under the management of the State Department of Education. According to the department, the model is "innovative." The São Paulo government reported that the state has approximately 86 thousand people living on the streets, with 52 thousand in the capital city, São Paulo.
According to information published by Adriana Ferraz's column in the newspaper O Estado de S.Paulo, the Tarcísio government did not specify whether his administration will be responsible for building the facilities or define their locations. The Education Department stated that, due to the number of homeless people in the state, the targeted population will need to be "segregated into categories, such as drug addicts, families, and individuals."
The Tarcísio government has already faced criticism for another educational initiative. This week, the Secretary, Renato Feder, confirmed the end of printed books in public schools in São Paulo state. He is also under investigation by the Attorney General's Office (PGR), which is looking into suspicions of a conflict of interest between Feder's position and his business activities.
