Iniqüidade Educacional no Brasil. Uma Avaliação com Dados do PISA 2000

    (Université Catholique de Louvain, Bélgica)


This paper assesses the extent of educational inequality and inequity in Brazil, using data obtained from the international study PISA 2000 prepared by the OECD. We provide some descriptive indices of inequality, as well as a measure of inequity (understood as inequality of educational opportunities), based on a simple inferential analysis. Most indicators show that the levels of educational inequality and inequity in Brazil are very high.
