FARENZENA, Nalú; GIL, Juca; MACHADO, Maria Goreti Farias  and  MOSNA, Rosa Maria Pinheiro. Education funding policies in Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil (1990-2014). Educ. Soc. [online]. 2018, vol.39, n.144, pp.600-617.  Epub Sep 06, 2018. ISSN 0101-7330.

The education funding policies of Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay are analyzed, contrasting the countries and a period of progressive governments (2003-2014) and the 1990s, when neoliberal policies were established. The policies are approached under three dimensions - government accountability, public expenditure and distribution of resources among the governments -, being highlighted maintenance or redefinition situations. In general terms, partial redefinitions were evidenced, as well as the strong influence of distinctive marks in education funding according to the forms of State and the countries’ educational organization.

Keywords : Education funding; Comparative education; Education in Brazil; Education in Argentina; Education in Uruguay.
