Development and educational policy in Latin America

From the end of the Second World War to the close of the 1960s, the idea prevailed in Latin America that educational development was an indispensable requisite for the successful promotion of economic growth and distributive justice. Although opinions differed as to the level that should be given priority —primary, secondary or higher— all agreed that through the expansion of the formal education system a state of affairs would be reached that resembled the picture presented by the developed countries which served as models.
