We are a branch of the QEdu platform, created in 2012 to discuss educational data in Brazil. We believe in education as the foundation for the changes our society needs. In order to have more advanced, just, and equitable countries, it is essential to have quality public education for everyone, without exception. That is the rationale for the existence of this site: to discuss the major inequalities present in Brazilian and global education, particularly related to students’ socioeconomic level, gender, and location. We understand that in the pursuit of equity, thoroughly understanding our inequalities is the first step to addressing them.
We also consider it very important to have a broad vision of education that allows us to discuss student learning beyond language and mathematics, which are obviously fundamental. It is also necessary to know how students are faring in other important skills for the future and life in society, such as collaborative problem-solving and financial education.
We believe it is essential to position ourselves related to the world: how do our countries compare to the best educational systems? And how do we compare to other Latin American countries?
The debate about education needs to gain a sense of urgency and be based on data and evidence. We hope that this site is useful to researchers, policymakers, administrators, educators, and other individuals committed to improving the quality of basic education, whether in Brazil or in neighboring Latin American countries.
Note: QEdu Países considers Level 3 of PISA as the appropriate learning level for 15 and 16-year-olds.
