Agency for International Development (Dept. of State), Washington, DC. Bureau for Latin America.
This report demonstrates the variety of statistical data that can be used in making analytical studies of the education sector in Guatemala and indicates some areas in which useful data seem to be lacking. The report is divided into four major parts: text, graphics, major tables, and an appendix. The text consists of a written and tabular summary of some of the highlights of the 70 major tables which make up the bulk of the report. The text covers six topical education breakdowns: population and school age population, enrollment by areas and sex in public and private schools, educational achievements of the population and illiteracy, physical and administrative aspects of the school system, attrition of students in the system and graduates, and budgets and expenditures for education. Sources and limitations of the data are presented in the report. The graphics section contains charts and graphs depicting some of the phenomena of the education system in Guatemala. The 70 major tables are divided into sections on demand for education, enrollment, schools and classrooms, teachers, public funds, materials and welfare services, special training, teacher utilization, movement through the system, unit costs, utilization of physical plants, and specialization of students and graduates. The appendix gives original sources for the tables. (Author/JH)
