In this colloquium I will present information about teacher education in Brazil, using data from the SAE-- large scale educational assessment used in the country that resembles the American NAEP in many ways. I will discuss how mathematics teachers are educated in the country and talk about some results from SAEB concerning teachers’ classroom practices.
