Latin American Economic Outlook 2015

Education, Skills and Innovation for Development

The Latin American Economic Outlook is the OECD Development Centre’s annual analysis of economic developments in Latin America. It is produced in partnership with the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) as well as CAF, the development bank of Latin America. Each edition includes a detailed macroeconomic overview as well as analysis of how the global context is shaping economic performance in the region. The Latin American Economic Outlook also takes an in-depth look at a special theme related to development in Latin America, taking into account future strategic challenges and opportunities. The 2015 edition focuses on the role of education, skills and innovation for development, taking stock of the current situation in the region, identifying the main challenges and opportunities in these fields, and presenting a series of policy areas where action is needed to impulse Latin America’s development.

Hide / Show Abstract

Although enrolment in pre-primary and secondary education is low compared with the Latin American average, the gap has been closing. In the region as a whole, the net secondaryschool enrolment rate increased by 20% between 2000 and 2012, but in the Dominican Republic it increased by more than 50% during the same period (see graphic). This was mainly thanks to the improved net enrolment rate for boys, which grew by more than 60%.
