Reviews of National Policies for Education: Santa Catarina State, Brazil 2010

Education is a central priority for the State of Santa Catarina. Its policy makers are firmly committed to provide a relevant and efficient education system that responds to the requirements of the global economy and will allow the state to be competitive, both nationally and internationally .

This OECD review gives a brief overview of education in Santa Catarina and its development. It presents an analysis of the system from pre-school to tertiary education and lifelong learning, and identifies key directions for policy reform in light of the challenges encountered by officials, communities, enterprises, educators, parents and students. It concludes with a set of key recommendations concerning the structure of the system and its labour market relevance; access and equity; governance and management; research, development and innovation; internationalisation; and financing.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter analyses the policies, trends and challenges of the overall professional and technological education (EPT) system in Santa Catarina, with reference to the federal policies and Brazil’s legislative framework that determine the scope, opportunities and constraints in which the state operates. The chapter looks into the regulatory framework and the distribution of responsibilities for EPT, analyses enrolment patterns and education provision by state and private providers, and discusses links and transitions to the labour market.
