Hello dear friends! This Dica is very special, because we are celebrating Teacher’s day in Brazil!
Origin of Teacher’s day in Brazil
On October 15, 1827, the then emperor D. Pedro I instituted a decree to create Elementary Education in Brazil. In this way, schools were set up across the country. The law required the school to teach reading, writing and a some math calculation for boys and girls. In addition to that, the decree established a regulation of the contents to be taught and the working conditions of the teachers.
