This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a Brazilian definition of national education goals. It suggests the adoption of a philosophy of education that will provide a pattern of the kind of education needed in Brazil, namely a combination of modern humanistic culture and technology, by taking into account the actual socioeconomic conditions of the various regions of the country. There should be an integrated school system designed to reduce the gaps between different educational levels. The system should gear itself more to the technological needs of the time, integrating itself with government and industry. People will participate to a greater extent in the development of the country if they are exposed to an educational system that acts as a powerful promoter of national development. Ten major results are envisioned by the government in the coming years, among them continuity between primary and secondary education, reform of industrial schools, introduction of ETV, improvement of teaching standards, increase in the educational budget, university reform, expansion of literacy programs, adoption of specific elementary/secondary expansion programs, and better educational financing.
