Recursos Publicos Aplicados Em Educacao-1960/1967 [Public Contributions to Education in Brazil from 1960 to 1967].
Machado de Souza, Edson
An analysis of the financial contributions to educational programs made by the Brazilian government attempts to outline the actual costs, describe the ways in which the funds were spent, and ascertain whether or not the amounts were sufficient for the projects on hand. The report is intended to shed new light on the general educational situation in Brazil during its present program of reform. Various tables of statistical data show: (1) expenditures by the federal government in education, (2) expenditures by states and municipalities, (3) the portion of the 1960-67 Brazilian national budget projected for education and culture, (4) an index system of percentages of those expenses incurred during 1960-67, (5) a comparison of Brazil's expenditures for education with other countries, (6) a breakdown of private vs. public contributions, (7) student enrollments in elementary, secondary, and higher education systems, and (8) per capita costs in each of these categories between 1960 and 1967. Conclusions drawn indicate that public costs climbed from 9.2% in 1960 to 11.9% in 1968 to an estimated 13.2% for 1970. Educational leaders recommend that private contributions be increased, that an emergency program of technical assistance be administered, and that remedial programs on the elementary level be established to face the growing matriculation in that sector.
