The president of the National Institute for Research and Educational Studies (Inep), Danilo Dupas, said this Wednesday (10) that the National High School Exam (Enem) and the National Student Performance Exam (Enade) “will be held normally in the coming weeks”, despite the resignation of 37 employees who worked in the Enem organization.
“I reinforce that the applications are guaranteed, the preparatory phases are completed”, said Dupas in a hearing at the Education Committee of the Chamber of Deputies.
Enem is scheduled for the 21st and 28th of November. Enade assesses the performance of students who are completing their university degree.
The civil servants asked for collective resignation from their positions in response to what they classify as “mismanagement” by the institute, an agency linked to the Ministry of Education and responsible for applying all public examinations for evaluating teaching in Brazil.
Most of those who resigned, including coordinators, worked in the management and technology area at Inep and directly took care of Enem.
In an official letter sent to the board of Inep, to which the CNN had access at the beginning of the week, the civil servants affirm that “considering the systemic situation of the agency and the technical and administrative weakness of the current top management of Inep”, they request the dismissal of the position in commission or commissioned function they occupied.
“I want to clarify that the 37 servers who made the positions available are managers and directly linked to Enem. These civil servants remain at the disposal of the positions until the publication of the act in the Official Gazette of the Union. These civil servants reinforced their commitment to continue working until the final dismissal process. These civil servants are not leaving Inep, they are career civil servants and will continue to fulfill their duties”, said Dupas on Wednesday.
“It should be clarified that they made themselves available for the presidency, they continue to work in their roles. At 5 pm, I will meet with the civil servants association to hear the claims, together with the MEC (Ministry of Education). I believe that with dialogue, governance and transparency, we will reach a solution”, commented the director of Inep.
