ABRAHAO, Jorge. Public funding and expenditures on basic education in Brazil and comparisons with some OECD and Latin American countries. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2005, vol.26, n.92, pp. 841-858. ISSN 0101-7330. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-73302005000300007.
This paper looks into public funding and expenditures directed to Basic Education in Brazil and some countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation Development (OCDE) and Latin America, so as to build a comparative situation of expenditures. It thus presents the current funding structure of the Brazilian educational system and its main problems as well as data of public expenditures on education between 1995- 002. Moreover, these data and indicators of public funding and expenditures on education in Brazil are contrasted with those of some OCDE and Latin American countries.
