Topics in Brazilian Education

This class is going to be a great history lesson from me. My knowledge in Brazilian history is astoundingly small since studied all my life in American and British schools.

Professors: Eric Bettinger, Paulo Blikstein, Martin Carnoy

“The objective of this seminar is to provide students from different backgrounds an opportunity to learn about current issues and debates on Brazilian education. The seminar will cover topics on the history of Brazilian education; an overview of current school reforms at the federal level; educational assessments; education and economic growth; educational equity; teacher labor market; technology and education; early childhood; and higher education to Brazil.”

We started out with Anisio Teixeira and the “Escola Nova  movement with the article: Manifesto dos Pioneiros da Educação Nova
