Systemic regulation and basic education funding policies

The present paper discusses the current federative organization of the funding policy in the regulation of the public systems responsible for providing services that enforce the common right to basic education. Although the political engineering of funding established after 1996 allowed for more autonomy and decentralization of management and the local adoption of centrally defined programs, it did not reduce much the inequalities of intersystem and interschool teaching resources. This study analyzes the possible effects of the changes introduced by the approval of the Fund for the Development of Basic Education (FUNDEB) in the regulation of the public school systems.
