On 5 July 2024, Dr Anderson Macedo de Jesus successfully defended his PhD thesis exploring the efficacy and impact of values-driven education in Brazil.

He offers a detailed study of three distinct educational initiatives in various educational institutes in Brazil, assessing whether values-driven education can effectively alter the prioritization of values among students and, if so, under what conditions.

He finds that it can, though the impact is dependent on several factors including the level of parental involvement and the degree of integration of the values-driven programme into the school’s environment and culture. He further highlights the critical role of a student-centred approach in education, arguing for the necessity of embedding such programmes within a comprehensive and holistic educational framework.
