What’s Happening on private Colleges and Universities in Brazil. October 13, 2009

 Dear Gearheads, there’s been an unholy, ungodly and unkdeish fact happening on the lowest part of the globe, 5 years ago, all universities had 5 to 6 hour in the morning / afternoon, and 4 hour classes in the night ( Morning, from 7 to 12, Afternoon from 1 to 5, Night from 6 to 10 ).

If the professors had 4 hours of classes per week, he got (classes * 4weeks) * salary per hour of money per month, including the months that he didn’t worked. So he could live instead of surviving. And life was good and stuff was great.

Now, in my state, there’s just a couple of universities that are still doing this kind of classes, the great majority of universities are doing one class a day, with three hours, and since all courses have 6 courses per semester, with only one class by day, all teachers that had 4hour per week of classes are now with three, but since the minimum amount of time to be graduated didn’t changed, the professors still need to give hour-classes, thus increasing the number of weeks to work.

And since them are now only giving 3 hours per class instead of 4, his paycheck is reduced by 25%. I talked with a friend that works in one of those universities, she said that she start working in january and stops in december, with 2 weeks of vacation in june and 2 in january. before that she had 2 weeks more of vacation and a 25% more of salary in her pocket.

Since the universities are now paying 25% less to the professors, I asked she if the montly fee from the students were less expensive too. “Of course not, t’s still the same price plus annual correction.”
