Changes in the Repetition and Dropout Situation in Honduran Primary Education since the Late 1980s

Education 3-13, v44 n4 p458-477 2016
While Honduras's post-1990s enrolment status has improved, no reports examine changes in status. We examined changes in enrolment patterns by analysing 1689 children's data using the true cohort method. We also analysed educational-development strategies/policies and project documentation. Grade-failure numbers did not improve over time because more children attended school, and no clear influence of strategies/policies and projects on educational quality was observed. Enrolment patterns were divided into graduation pattern with once-or-none repetition, and into dropout pattern after one-or-two years' attendance. However, the more recent the school entrance year, the more often students continued attendance until graduation. Policy implications of these are discussed.
