The President Dilma Rousseff has announced on this Monday (22) that the government aims to reach 1.2 million enrollments in federal universities until 2014. She had already announced the creation of four units in the North and Northeast. With this expansion, the federal system should have 63 universities.

Roussef says that cities with more than 50 000 people had priority in the choice of sites (places) for universities. The cities with high rates of poverty and over 80 000 inhabitants also were considered, where local governments (city halls) have difficulty to invest in education.

For the president, a leap in Brazilian education can contribute to face the economic crisis that affects countries like the United States and the European Union.
