Decentralizing Education in Guatemala: School Management by Local Communities. Education Notes
Rojas, Carlos; Valerio, Alexandria; Demas, Angela
Human Development Network Education
Guatemala set out in 1992 to increase access to education in remote areas. Its National Community-managed Program for Educational Development (PRONADE) has evolved from a small, innovative pilot program in 19 rural communities, to a nationwide program reaching over 4,100 communities and 445,000 children. PRONADE is one of the most proactive managerial, administrative, and financial decentralization measures taken in Latin America. Isolated rural communities have been truly empowered to administer and manage the schools. This document describes PRONADE, including program achievements and remaining challenges.
