The schooling of people with disabilities in Brazil: inclusive education and meaning. In: Disability studies in education: anti-ableism, intersectionality, and the ethics of care

This book is the result of a university extramural activity which articulates research and teaching, linked to the Inclusive Education Lab (Laboratório de Educação Inclusiva) at the State University of Santa Catarina (LEdI/Udesc), Brazil. The publication was a collective effort during the Covid-19 pandemic and the attacks against inclusive education. The source of such attacks was the Decree No. 10.502, which was signed on September 30, 2020 by the president Jair Bolsonaro (BRASIL, 2020) and suspended by the Brazilian Supreme Court on December 1st, 2020 (STF, 2020). This happened after the Brazilian Socialist Party (PSB) presented the Direct Action for the Declaration of Unconstitutionality No. 6.590, following various manifestations opposing the decree, coming from researchers and activists with and without disabilities (CONJUR, 2020; VIVAS; FALCÃO, 2020).

Collective work was our way of dealing with the mourning of thousands of preventable deaths, transforming pain into struggle and hoping for resistance. We finished writing it on the centennial of Paulo Freire, who is rejected by those who devalue democracy and flirt with authoritarianism.
