Ceará goes to school

The northeastern state of Ceará, among Brazil’s poorest, is engaged in one of Latin America’s most ambitious reforms of public education. A belief in human development and in the value of striving led me to visit classrooms and interview students, teachers and managers at all levels of the public education system, impressed by the emergence of so many talented people responding to opportunities and clearly defined goals. Many uncertainties remain, subject to political influences that will shape the continuity of these efforts.Yet resilient young people are reaching new levels of achievement. Much will depend on their continuing resilience and determination. This essay will explore these contingencies, full of challenges that will take time, effort and patience to overcome.
