Schooling for Success: Preventing Repetition and Dropout in Latin American Primary Schools

By Laura Randall; Joan B. Anderson | Go to book overview
Save to active project

In 1997, the marginal cost of a student was R$915.56 per year. The economic benefits of the program were 2.1 million reais (1 reais = 1 dollar), a saving of more than 10 percent of the investment in the program in 1996 (R$19.6 million).


Future Outlook

The several programs spoken of here are characterized by decentralization and supervision. However, they should take into account both teacher training and the social function of a school. The programs' success should increase the ability of the poorest citizens to earn a living and consequently should improve Brazil's highly unequal income distribution. This concept underlies the government's strong commitment to four-year financing of the programs and its multiple strategies to publicize and implement them, which is a strong element favoring their success.
