WERLE, Flávia Obino Corrêa. Overview of education policies in Brazil: an analysis of the external evaluations of education systems. Rev. Lusófona de Educação [online]. 2014, n.27, pp.159-179. ISSN 1645-7250.

Join the last fifty years a considerable expansion in the range of the Brazilian state accountability regarding the provision of compulsory and free education: 1960 7-10 years and, in 2009, now covers 4 to 17 years. The democratization of education, long demanded by Brazilian society, is included in the Federal Constitution in 1988 under the term “democratic management”. But a new form of management education takes account of educational systems, prevailing evaluative ways, the search for indicators, rankings, productivity.

Entrepreneurs are assumed as social actors become interlocutors of different governmental Brazilian. There is an intensification of procedures and comprehensive external evaluations that overlap the different levels and types as education, from basic education to graduate. In terms of basic education assessments that established in the 1990s, intensify and consolidate in 1995, taking new dimension in 2005 with “Prova Brasil”.

The synthetic indicators convey understanding about the conditions of development of education and provide ratings producing a sense that standardizes common understandings about the Brazilian education.
