ZONA DE IMPACTO (4): Let's discuss students' evaluation?

In the last two years, national exams did not count towards completing secondary subjects, but only towards access to higher education. The adaptation was a result of the pandemic, but the Minister of Education has already shown himself to be in favor of this becoming the rule. The problem is that in this way, the regulatory effect on the grades given by teachers in each school is lost, and the subjectivity of the assessment is accentuated, benefiting some and harming others, warn researchers from Nova SBE.

In the fourth episode of Zona de Impacto, an Expresso podcast in partnership with NOVA SBE (Nova School of Business and Economics), we spoke with Catarina Ângelo and Pedro Freitas, researchers and PhD students at Nova SBE.

Because this is an issue that concerns both students and teachers, Ana Balcão Reis, Associate Professor at Nova SBE and specialized in Education Economics, joined us.

The moderation was in charge of the journalist, specialist in Education, Isabel Leiria.

Populism: Will it stay in lockdown?

In periods of economic distress, politicians who find scapegoats for the current situation are usually acclaimed by citizens that once might have felt discouraged to vote. However, the rhetoric used works as an attempt to divide the population into native members and non-native members and minorities (cultural populism); honest members of the working class and big business owners (socio-economic populism), and victims of corruption and politicians (anti-establishment populism).
