Rodríguez, Alberto
Dec 2000
This study represents a collaborative effort between the two Banks, developed in close consultation with brazilian government officials and education authorities, both at the federal and state level. The report is based on new research commissioned to brazilian social scientists focusing on both supply and demand factors affecting student attainment and performance. It explores the main challenges faced by brazilian secondary education in terms of access, equity, quality and financing, and presents a menu of policy options -not prescriptions- to address them.
