At an end
Last two interviews yesterday, first with the teachers' union, the second with the parents-teachers association in Rio Grande do Sul. Some qualified support from the first interviewee and a more pessimistic view of the PT from the latter, who claim this was due to their organisation being apolitical and autonomous in their dealings with Olivio's government.
I may have to make a few calls on Monday to clarify some matters with previous informants, but now it seems as if the fieldwork part is over.
And now on to the writing...
