FGV launches study on governance models for education systems in countries with federal governments
In order to contribute to discussions about the structure of Brazil’s national education system, the Everyone for Education Group, the Education Collaboration Movement and Fundação Getulio Vargas have produced a study on the subject. The study will be launched on May 24, at 11 am, at an event broadcast live on FGV’s YouTube channel.
Given the topic’s complexity and lack of consensus, the study was based on international references to guide reflection on local conditions and systemic weaknesses in Brazilian education. Five countries that have federal governments were selected to underpin the research: Germany, Australia, Canada, the United States and Mexico.
The study made comparisons from federative and educational perspectives between the structures and mechanisms available in Brazil and in these five other countries. The study also provides a starting point to improve the national education system. Knowledge of the educational governance models used in these five countries can make a major contribution to debate in this area in Brazil.
The speakers at the meeting will be federal representative Idilvan Alencar (Democratic Labor Party, Ceará); the executive president of the Everyone for Education Group, Priscila Cruz; the director of Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Center for the Development of Public Management and Educational Policy (FGV DGPE), Henrique Paim; the coordinator of FGV DGPE, Jaana Nogueira; and the coordinator of the knowledge management and content production area at the Education Collaboration Movement, Fernanda Castro. The debate will be moderated by the political strategy manager at the Everyone for Education Group, Lucas Hoogerbrugge.
