 Brazilian public management, at the most varied levels, does not invest resources efficiently in the sectors that it traditionally manages - security, education, health and social security -, according to a study carried out by the Institute for Economic Research Foundation (Fipe), under the order of the Brazilian Institute of Competitive Ethics (Etco). “The management variables are more important than the amount invested”, evaluates the president of Etco, André Franco Montoro Filho.

In the area of ​​education, Brazil shows low performance when the data obtained here are compared with results from other countries that have been submitted to the International Student Assessment Program (Pisa). While Brazil, which invests 6,6% of GDP in education (including public and private investments), reached only 350 points in Pisa, the international average is 500 points, with the average application percentage of 6,3% of GDP in the sector.
