EDUCO Today: Two parallel education systems in El Salvador in need of reconciliation

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Building on the previous discussant’s characterization of EDUCO, this panel aims to explore in depth how EDUCO is actualized in El Salvador today. Like many of the other SBM programs in the Americas, the EDUCO program in El Salvador, one of the first and most influential of the programs, is likely to undergo substantial revision or be dismantled. This presentation will review this experience, exploring the institutional viability of the model, as well as the political forces that are driving change. This discussion will explore also the administrative, political, financial, and management implications of having developed parallel systems to meet the needs of the rural poor. It will explore the tradeoffs between accountability and empowerment of communities, efficient school management, equitable conditions of employment for teachers, equity of access for disadvantaged communities, and the political impact for stakeholders such as teacher unions.
The presentation is based on a recent analysis and options developed for the Ministry of Education in El Salvador to move beyond the EDUCO model to enable the Salvadoran system to address the urgent needs for improved quality, while maintaining accountability for results.
