Brazilian education system has both public and private sector involvement. Positive point of public education is that it is based on humanitarian and social project model. Private education, on the other hand, focuses primarily on “future” career. Negative points of public education include lack of pedagogical structure, finances and absence of better security conditions.

Not all Brazilians have adequate access to good education, this is a grave problem mainly for those who lack fiscal security. Despite of public schools, they have to work in order to buy sustenance. This harsh reality turns children away from education.

In order to improve access to education, I think, more social inclusion projects targeted for students with adverse financial conditions can be run by the government. This would improve the quality of education and life for many children. Mikael Menezes da Rocha Barreto (13 years old)
