Contemporary Research on Latin American Education: A Review and Profile.
Egginton, Everett; Koppel, Sheree
To prepare the education chapter for the forthcoming volume of the U.S. Library of Congress'"Handbook of Latin American Studies," the author reviewed over 500 publications on Latin American education issued between 1978 and 1983; the abstracts of approximately 200 of them will be published in the forthcoming volume of the Handbook. The research described herein analyzes this selected material and the material contained in previous Handbook volumes from three perspectives: (1) a survey perspective or a statistical profile of the publications, (2) a country or regional perspective, and (3) a developmental perspective. The paper concludes that while lacunae exist and rigorously designed and convincingly argued research is scarce, the publications continue to be abundant, varied in scope, and diverse in the range of topics explored.
