SAO PAULO (AP) Brazilian President-elect Jair Bolsonaro has appointed an ultraconservative philosopher to serve as education minister, apparently in a bow to his evangelical Christian backers.

Rodriguez previously taught in military academies and currently teaches at the Federal University of Ouro Preto. He has written more than 30 books, mostly with anti-left outlooks.

Colombian-born Rodriguez has written on his blog that Brazilians should "remember and celebrate" the 1964 military coup that put the South American country in a military dictatorship until 1985. He also has also said that corruption would not be endemic in Brazil if a monarchy had been put in place.

Bolsonaro, who takes office on Jan. 1, has said he would like to promote a law forbidding "Marxist indoctrination" and gender-biased teachings at public schools. Rodriguez has expressed support for such a move, unlike another candidate being considered for the job: Mozart Ramos, a former state education secretary.
