Abstract

RESUMEN El crecimiento demográfico en Tenerife en los últimos años ha generado mayor demanda de servicios educativos. Dado que este incremento no ha sido homogéneo en todo el territorio insular, los desequilibrios oferta-demanda son diferentes según municipios. Y estos desajustes deberían ser considerados a la hora de decidir la instalación de nuevos centros. En este trabajo se diseña un algoritmo, basado en programación genética, que permite planificar la evolución en la dotación pública de plazas de educación primaria y secundaria obligatoria en los municipios de la Isla, bajo el supuesto de que estas decisiones están inspiradas en criterios de racionalidad económica. ABSTRACT The growth of the Tenerife population during the last few years has created an increase in the demand for educational facilities. The supply-demand disequilibrium is different among towns in the island since this demographic increase has not been uniform throughout the island. These imbalances should be taken into account when decisions are made to open new educational centres. In this paper these decisions are assumed to be based on economic rationality criteria. Based on genetic programming an algorithm is designed which considers these criteria in order to plan the building of primary and secondary public schools centres in Tenerife towns.
