The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) will support the efforts of Movimento Todos Pela Educação (All for Education Movement), a broad-based Brazilian civil society organization to ensure universal access to quality education for all Brazilian youth by the country’s 200th birthday.

Through its National Educational Plan, Brazil aims to achieve increased literacy rates, test scores, and access to early childhood education, among other educational indicators, before the bicentenary of Brazil’s independence in 2022.

Although school access has expanded significantly in recent years with 97 percent of children ages 6 to 14 in attendance, quality remains the country’s greatest educational challenge.

All for Education Movement has an important role on raising awareness with civil society on educational challenges, establishing a set of concrete goals for monitoring progress, and engaging in a fruitful dialogue with public officials.
