These are the three central questions of this report. 2 By telling the story of Brazil’s remarkable run of policy continuity and sustained reform over the past fifteen years, we hope this report can serve as a resource for other developing countries seeking rapid progress in education. By benchmarking Brazil’s current education performance in a competitive global context, we identify issues that still need attention. In reviewing the latest research from Brazil and elsewhere that can guide the design of sound reforms and cost-effective programs, we hope to stimulate and support the federal, state and municipal governments in setting the education agenda for the next decade.

Efficiency of Education Spending The report raises concerns about Brazil’s current level of spending on public education, especially the government’s proposed goal of raising spending to 7 percent of GDP. 8 percent, which can be expected because the school-aged share of the population is larger in Brazil than in most OECD countries. However, Brazil also spends more than Mexico, Chile, India, and Indonesia, which have similar demographic profiles. Second, Brazilian GDP is growing rapidly. Third and most important, Brazil is experiencing a demographic transition that will have a dramatic impact on the school-aged population over the next decade.

Of these four recommendations, perhaps the last holds the most potential power. The long-term work of improving primary and secondary school performance is the responsibility of more than 5,500 state, federal district, and municipal school systems in Brazil. Literally thousands of creative new programs and policies are being tried out at this moment across Brazil by dynamic, results-oriented secretaries of education. Few other countries in the world have the scale, scope, and creativity of policy action that can be seen today in Brazil.
