      Experience demonstrates that most faculty members will welcome opportunities to improve their teaching if changes are not perceived as imposed or threatening to their professional standing. This slow growth has been a puzzle, because education and human capital is frequently identified as an important element of growth. While Latin America has made much progress in advancing the first level of educational opportunity, many interlocking reasons prevent equality from being obtained at all levels of educational opportunity. The hybrid model of management is clear when it comes to working arrangements. First, a neglect of real functioning institutions in favor of aggregate reputational indices. Using the algebraic methods developed by Ragin, we test six hypotheses about factors determining the developmental character of particular institutions.

      This has placed in relief the emergence of accreditation institutions and procedures aimed being used as an instrument of control or at least of information, regarding private expansion and the progressive privatization of the state sector. With the exception of Argentina and Costa Rica, those traditions are characterized by large social gaps and a widespread collectivism that has various manifestations. Dominicans prefer autocratic intermediaries. The gap between regions and between rural and urban areas within each country, strongly associated with those between social classes and ethnic groups, was not reduced through centralized educational policies that typically resulted in greater subsidies to the more advantaged groups". As Hodgson, an economist himself, noted: The blindness may be partial, but the impairment is nevertheless serious and disabling.

      Eventually, such programs could affect education policy in many Latin American countries providing a strong partnership across the world. Students did not receive a response for nearly a year. The type of schooling they are offered is often not equal to that provided to better-off children. The importance of data collection is directly linked to the implementation of teaching improvements and the assessment of its impact on student learning. Technology is not the only factor relevant to the getting of a decent education in Latin America.

Education and Poverty in Latin America
