Pre-Service Education in Brazil: Findings of a Country-wide Social Entrepreneurship Initiative — a presentation by Martin Carnoy

  • Carnoy Martin headshot

    Martin Carnoy is the Vida Jacks Professor of Education at the Stanford University School of Education. He is a labor economist with a special interest in the relationship between the economy and the educational system. To this end, he studies the U.S. labor market (including the roles of race, ethnicity and gender), the U.S. educational system and systems in many other countries. Carnoy uses comparative analysis to understand how education influences productivity and economic growth, how and why educational systems change over time, and why some countries' educational systems are marked by better student performance than others'. He has studied extensively the impact of vouchers and charter schools on educational quality and has recently focused on differences in teacher preparation and teacher salaries across countries, as well as larger issues of the impact of economic inequality on educational quality.
