We promote the connection between the production of scientific knowledge and teacher's practice. Through the integration of different research areas and reference centers, we encourage the development of innovative evidence-based educational policies.
Comprehensive education will not be possible without everyone's commitment. According to the Brazilian Constitution, the whole society must collaborate for the full development of the new generations.
This is why all social actors need to work together in a co-responsible spirit to fulfill democratically established commitments and advance the education agenda. Assuming this responsibility, the Institute works in partnership with government officials, teachers, police makers, researchers, entrepreneurs and other to promote policies and practices for building quality education for all.
We develop educational solutions, research and knowledge in pedagogy, educational management, assessment and articulation to be replicable at scale. Through the training of educators and police makers, our proposals are taken to public elementary and high schools in partnership with the Departments of Education.
We share knowledge and experiences and conduct engagement actions to mobilize the various actors of society to put education on the agenda. By stimulating dialogue and the exchange of ideas and innovations, we also contribute to the dissemination and formulation of more effective public policies.
We believe in evidence-based educational management as a powerful and assertive tool in addressing Brazilian social problems. In order to contribute to the construction of education for the 21st century, the Institute has a Scientific Committee that, alongside educators, police makers and researchers from various fields of knowledge, helps to produce and disseminate scientific evidence to support the construction of comprehense education policies and practices.
Are part of our Scientific Committee the economist Daniel Santos, at the University of São Paulo (USP); psychologists Filip de Fruyt, coordinator of Ayrton Senna Institute Chair at the University of Ghent, Belgium; Oliver John of the University of California; and Ricardo Primi, from São Francisco University; and the chief economist of the Ayrton Senna Institute, Ricardo Paes de Barros, who also coordinates Ayrton Senna Institute Chair at Insper.
