Nalú Farenzena Juca Gil Maria Goreti Farias Machado Rosa Maria Pinheiro Mosna About the authors


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.
