Carolina commented on Highly educated people boost economy and society

Hi Shane Zhao! Thank you for your considerations! Here in Brazil, big companies also offer financial help for those who want to pursue a degree or postgraduate. But this is a focused effort, only people who can get a job in these specific companies have this possibility - and I have to say that it is not for every employee, you have to eligible to apply.
In addition, we need to consider the difference between countries. In Brazil, the best universities are public and for free. Students who are approved normally come from high-income families that can afford to pay for a good high school. Elementary and high school are paid and very expensive. The education provided by government is free but not decent.

In USA, the effort is to increase the number of students in universities by reducing the tuition fee. In Brazil, it is to provide a quality education since elementary school for the population.

I´m still getting used to the tool, I´ll look for specific examples! ;)
