The Saber (spanish/portuguese: knowledge) currency is an educational sectoral currency in Brazil that is handed out by the ministry of education. The currency is given for free to pupils, who can use it to buy education from older pupils. A sectoral currency is a form of complementary currency that is restricted to a specific sector. ...

The currency propagates from lower grades to higher grades in schools and finally propagtes to universities where it is used to buy education from the state. At this point it is collected and returned to the ministry.

The duration the currency remains valid is limited in order to encourage fast propagation of the currency.

The net effect is that many pupils and students take some time to teach lesser grades and, by being teachers themself, gain a better understanding of the topic they teach, learn to appreciate the value of education and learn to appreciate the work of their own teachers.

In poor countries educational currencies can make educational efforts more feasible.
