I’ve written a lot about education recently and especially about the debacle surrounding the Enem, the country’s unified university entrance exam.

Close to 10,000 students affected by the screw up during the Nov. 6 exam got a chance to retake the test today.

I wrote about the mess here for the Financial Times blog and will also have a piece up on the Christian Science Monitor web site later.

My longer piece about the government’s desire to create a unified test that will replace the vestibulares, the individual entrance exams held by each university, can be found here at the Chronicle of Higher Education site. It’s a pay site.
