Welcome to the Lemann Dialogue 2014

This year’s theme is “Public Education in Brazil: Where is it headed and can technological innovation, entrepreneurship and policy research help it improve?” It will be a wide-ranging conversation with scholars and researchers, policy makers, and entrepreneurs.

Not only will this be the first Lemann Dialogue to be held at Stanford University, but it will also inaugurate the new home of the Lemann Center For Educational Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Brazil at Stanford University.

The two days of the conference will present multiple opportunities for entrepreneurs, politicians, scholars and educational policy makers to discuss and analyze critical issues in Brazilian education through the multi-faceted prism of technological development, entrepreneurship, innovation, and scientific research both in Brazil and the U.S..

The policies and practices in the United States, California specifically, will be discussed with the focus on advancing ideas and strategies that might inform Brazil’s educational policies and practices.

The Lemann Dialogue 2014 is hosted by the Lemann Center at Stanford University in conjunction with the Stanford Graduate School of Education (GSE) and the Stanford Center for International Development, (SCID). It is co-sponsored by Columbia University, Harvard University, and the University of Illinois.

Featured speakers will include Cristovam Buarque, Senator and Former Minister of Education in Brazil; Jorge Paulo Lemann, Chairman of the Board, Lemann Foundation; Fernando Haddad, Mayor of São Paulo and Former Minister of Education in Brazil; Francisco Soares, President, INEP and Professor, University Federal de Minas Gerais; Ted Mitchell, Under Secretary, U.S. Department of Education (TBC) and Michael Kirst, President, California State Board of Education.
