Brazilian Education – Week 3 – Class Notes

This week Izabel Fonseca, also a Lemann Fellow, presented her research to get some feedback. She presented one of her research topics: socio-economic factors associated with the transition from colleges to the labor market.

Was very interested in the concept of indexing higher education institutions in terms of how much better off a student might be after they graduate – how “much bang for the buck” would a student get from investing time and money in a certain institution.
