Making Sense of Brazilian Higher Education Through Administrative Data
We are pleased to welcome Flavio Carvalhaes, Professor of Sociology at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, on Tuesday, March 7 to give a presentation on social stratification and higher education in Brazil. Professor Carvalhaes will present, “Making Sense of Brazilian Higher Education Through Administrative Data: Expansion Patterns, Privatization and the Stratification of Educational Opportunities.”
Carvalhaes’ scholarship examines inequalities in the Brazilian educational system, the transition from school to work, processes of higher education expansion, among other subjects. Currently, Flavio works with graduate students and Brazilian civil servants from the Ministry of Education to adopt administrative and register data to use in sociological research. He is looking at both the supply and demand for higher education to produce innovative research that can inform policies regarding the regulation of higher education in Brazil as well as how access to this segment of the educational system can become less unequal.
