Brazil's Bolsonaro picks pastor as latest education minister

11/7/2020 12:27
        Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced his second pick to head the education ministry in 11 days, naming a college professor and church pastor to the post.
        Milton Ribeiro, a former deputy dean of Mackenzie University in Sao Paulo who preaches at a Presbyterian church in Santos outside the metropolis, will be in charge of one of the government's most desired jobs.
        Religious groups supporting the president say the education ministry is key to boosting Christian values in Brazil and casting aside what they contend is leftist influence in the schools.
        Ribeiro's predecessor, economist Carlos Alberto Decotelli, left June 30 after only five days on the job amid multiple allegations that he had embellished his academic credentials.
