Schooling for Success: Preventing Repetition and Dropout in Latin American Primary Schools

By Laura Randall; Joan B. Anderson | Go to book overview

quality. Those provinces that have comparatively failed more in educating a past generation do worse in educating the present generation than other provinces that have worked more efficaciously in the past and in the present.

Living in a poor household and attending a non-private school in a poor province increases children's chances of failing at learning tests and/or repeating grades. These unequal outcomes in school performance are a challenge to equity because the place of residence and type of school make a crucial difference in the opportunity to receive a good education, thus adding school disadvantages to children's underprivileged family position.


Notes
1.
In the sample under study, the proportion of all children in public schools is 72 percent in Santiago del Estero and 79 percent in Greater Buenos Aires. The Federal District is an exception because that proportion is 56 percent. Private schools represent between 3.4 percent in Mendoza and 10 percent to 20 percent in the rest of the provinces. In the Federal District the figure is 44 percent. In Mendoza, Corrientes, and Santiago del Estero the proportion of children who attend rural schools, both public and private, is respectively 19 percent, 11 percent, and 18 percent. Córsico in this volume compares sample to census data on the number of pupils in each province and the Federal District.
2.
The only indicator of standard of living is the ratio achieved by dividing the number of members in the household by the number of rooms in the house. This rate of room overcrowding has proved to be a good predictor of family's socioeconomic conditions. The Permanent Households Survey estimates as non-poor a ratio of less than three persons per room and as poor three or more persons per room.
