EDUCATION: In Brazil, the goal of many high school students is so disputed win a place at a public university. Public institutions are the most renowned in Brazil, like the University of São Paulo (USP) and State University of Campinas (Unicamp). Furthermore, the teaching in these institutions is funded by the state, by the Brazilian government, and the student does not need to pay for their studies. They only have to pay if, of course, they choose a private university. Comparing these characteristics of the Brazilian higher education system with the United States, there are two major differences:
1) The most prestigious and internationally renowned American universities are private. You've heard of several of them: Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Duke, and many others.
2) public universities in the United States are paid.
Most American public universities are state-founded and administered by state agencies. Besides being paid, charge higher values of students from other states, or, in English, out-of-state students. This is because following the precept that students of the same state as the university - or, indeed, students' parents - contribute to the benefit of the institution to pay the taxes, while the out-of-state students contribute their own state .
It is because of institutions, both public and private, are paid, that American families open savings from early to save money for the education of their children.
