This article traces evidences of the evolution of some school efficiency indicators in Brazil, namely: Attendance Rate, Gross Schooling Rate, Net Schooling Rate; Age-Grade distortion rate. Our analysis permeates nearly three decades of educational policies in Brazil, by the computation of the indicators to the historical series of PNAD microdata. Some indicators were stratified by population subgroups, according to the following subgroups: sex, race and quantiles of the per head family income. The results show that the educational policies implemented in Brazil, which were more incisive in the Elementary level, were well succeeded in terms of increasing and promoting equal access and also reducing grade distortion. Nevertheless, in the high school and college, there was a favorable evolution, but in a lower baseline and with restrictions in the access of some population.
