(Jun 09, 2014) On June 3, 2014, the Brazilian Chamber of Deputies voted on and approved a National Education Plan, which will gradually increase the amount of resources invested in education until it reaches 10% of the country's Gross National Product. (Luciano Nascimento, Câmara Conclui Votação do PNE e Texto Segue à Sanção Presidencial, AGÊNCIA BRASIL (June 3, 2014).)

According to the Plan, in the next ten years 20 goals will have to be met, including eradication of illiteracy; increase in the number of spaces available in childcare facilities, high schools, professional education entities, and public universities; universalization of school care for children between four and five years old; and the availability of full-time schooling for at least 25% of middle-school students.

After the Plan is signed by Brazilian President Dilma Roussef, states and municipalities will have one year to develop their own education plans, which must be based on this approved national plan. (Id.)
