The initiative Olho nos Planos aims to promote popular participation in the construction and monitoring of Education Plans.
In order to stimulate effective participatory processes, the initiative is composed of several actions, materials and a portal on the Internet. It intends to help managers to think about the participation of civil society as a whole in the democratic management of their administrations, as well as in its instances of social control.
The materials were developed to support the society with information, proposals and methodologies that promote and sustain participatory processes committed to strengthening democratic management in education.
