Higher Education In Brazil: Stratification In The Privatization Of Enrollment
Higher Education In Brazil: Stratification In The Privatization Of Enrollment. Emerald Group Publishing Ltd, v. 11, p. 53-81 2015.
This paper focuses on the analysis of how mass inclusion has taken place primarily in the private higher education sector. I present data on the evolution of Brazilian higher education, indicating the complementary roles undertaken by public and private sectors and their effects on the present configuration of our higher education. Then, I discuss the increase in higher education enrollment, in view of two factors: the widening of the supply and demand base - the former specifically by means of the expansion of for-profit private sector - and the adoption of mechanisms for access and commitment to higher education by public financing for students in private institutions.115381
