The main purpose of this study is to discuss the relationship between education and development in the current context of Brazilian society, taking into account the systemic condition of a highly globalized economy. It starts with the premise that development is not feasible for all countries, at least in the standards achieved in the so-called First World, but also recognizes that the development of a nation is not realized without a quality education for all. Place under discussion the power of social transformation that has been attributed to education, since it is itself largely derived from socioeconomic conditions. Seeks to analyze to what extent the Brazilian educational standard would be compromising the country's development and how this, in its current state, affects the quality of education. It is, therefore, to analyze the potential and limits of education face the challenge of making Brazil a nation economically dynamic and socially equitable.
