Project Detail

BR-L1327 : Program to improve the quality and expand coverage of basic education in the sta

Project Description

The 2011-2020 Brazilian National Education Plan1 sets ambitious objectives for the country, the most important of which include: (i) universal education for the group between 15 and 17 years of age by 2016; (ii) 9 years of universal primary education for the entire group between 6 and 14 years of age; (iii) literacy for all children up to 8 years of age; (iv) advanced training for all basic education teachers; and (v) better school performance indicators. However, in terms of the main variables of promotion, coverage, and quality in education, Brazil¿s regions present a diverse panorama. Conditions in the northern region, which includes the state of Pará, and the northeastern region are worse than in other regions of the country.2 Pará is the country¿s second largest state in terms of surface area, encompassing 15% of Brazil¿s territory. It has a population of 7.6 million (2010 Census, Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics¿ (IBGE)), 70% of whom live in urban areas. Owing to its size, unique geographical features, difficult access routes, and distances between municipios, the state of Pará faces enormous challenges in terms of logistics and mobility. By 2016 an estimated US$65 billion will be invested in 46 projects in the mining, iron and steel, livestock, transportation, and tourism sectors, which are expected to generate 161,000 jobs.3 It will be hard, however, to take full advantage of these investments due to the low skill level of the labor force, with only 54% primary education and 5% having higher education), the absence of training programs tailored to the needs of the production sector and to developing basic and technical skills, and weak placement systems.4
