Education Policy in Brazil and the United States - Discrimination

dc.contributor.authorHeyneman, Stephen P.
dc.descriptionIncludes descriptive metadata provided by producer in MP3 file: "Peabody College of Education and Human Development - Podcasts & Videos - Brazil and the United States have federal education systems with many similar problems and dilemmas— achievement gaps between rich and poor, black and white, north and south, city and country; inefficiencies at both higher education and K- 12 levels; problems of overlapping governance; curricular quality; dropouts and repetition; urban ghettos where students appear to lack a desire to learn. Both have multiple layers of education authorities -- municipal, county, state and national; both have high ambitions to overcome inherited impediments and improve efficiency, quality and equity and hence improve prospects for economic growth. This project will begin collaboration on education policy between Peabody College of Education and Human Development at Vanderbilt University and the Faculty of Economics, Administration and Management at the University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil. The project will start with two workshops on education research, one at Peabody and a second in São Paulo. Partners: University of São Paulo, Carlos Azzoni (FEA), Marcos Rangel (FEA), Ricardo Madeira (FEA), Fernando Botelho (FIA)." By Fernando Botelho.en
