Center for Excellence and Innovation in Education Policies (CEIPE-FGV) is a think-and-do-thank housed in one of the best higher education institution of Brazil, Getulio Vargas Foundation. Ceipe-FGV has the mission to leverage equity, innovation and quality across Brazil's public education systems by supporting the Secretariats of Education and the Ministry in the design and implementation of evidence-based policies, producing and disseminating knowledge to inform policy and practice, and forming leaders to exert effective leadership on their systems.

Why We Invested

We believe that the transformation of public education will take place through people, particularly those in leadership positions. In Brazil this means working with the more than 5,500 municipal and state departments of education across the country. Without qualified technical teams capable of diagnosing problems, developing solutions and implementing them, Brazil will not have quality public education systems. CEIPE has an ambitious vision: they aim to become a national and international reference center in educational policy, contributing significantly to the lasting improvement of Brazilian basic education.
