Peabody researchers travel to Brazil to discuss education policy

A group of Peabody College Leadership, Policy and Organizations faculty will travel to Universidade de Sao Paulo in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for an Oct. 4-5 seminar on education policy in Brazil and the United States. The event is the second in a series of collaborations on education research between Vanderbilt and the University of Sao Paulo that kicked off in April 2010.

Stella Flores, Dale Ballou, Will Doyle and Stephen Heyneman will join colleagues from the University of Sao Paulo Department of Economics in discussing issues such as access and residency, higher education finance, performance incentives for teachers and international competition for higher education quality.
