Argentina: Reallocating Resources for the Improvement of Education. A World Bank Country Study.
The socioeconomic problems that arose in Argentina during the 1980s hurt the country's education system--one that historically has been among the most advanced in the region. Resources became scarcer, and the government's expenditures for education fell below regional and other international standards. This report proposes four policies to stop the deterioration of the education sector in Argentina: (1) provide equitable access to primary education of good quality; (2) decentralize secondary education; (3) increase the relevance of higher education; and (4) allocate financial resources more equitably and cost efficiently. Programs designed to meet the objectives of these four policies are described. Several tables of data are included, as well as a 4-page bibliography listing 41 references. Twenty-one annexes provide additional statistical data. (DB)
