The Pupil

The quotas leave of the constatao of that ' ' negros' ' they are not obtaining to compete with ' ' brancos' ' in the vestibular contest. In fact, this is truth in the measure where that population very faces serious social obstacles in its pertaining to school trajectory that make it difficult the access to superior education. Some necessary thing to be made to diminish this inaquality. But one of the deficiencies of the proposal of quotas is accurately of that it happens on one of the consequences of the racial discrimination and the educational inaquality without these, in itself same, are corrected. The solution of the quotas is not directed in the direction to consider an affirmative action that allows to the Brazilians with African ancestry to surpass deficiencies of its process of escolarizao and the stigma of the discrimination, but to demand that, for ' ' negros' ' , the admission criteria are less rigorous. But then a more rigorous vestibular contest for whites will be made other, less rigorous, for ' ' negros' ' , what certainly it will harm ' ' brancos' ' poor than they had also not had economic conditions to get education better, but if they strengthen to enter university. Perhaps the access the University through the vestibular contest is the ticket most difficult of all the educational system, therefore the vestibular contest places in igualitrias conditions of candidates deriving individuals of group distinct partners and that it gets, in its social trajectory, chances.

Therefore in this way the vestibular contest has been one of objects of great quarrel. The racial differences in Brazil are great and remain throughout history. Therefore, if this power, was given to the certain people they would go to place the diligent pupil in a university, if the merit will be the devotion, of what the pupil who can dedicate itself to the vestibular contest having integrally as educational structure good particular colleges. Then I do not believe that the politics of quotas is an end, quite to the contrary, she is it that is stimulating all the debate around racism in Brazil, and is from these quarrels that will be born the routes of many questions that today it is placed
