Abstract

La descentralización es una de las políticas más importantes implementadas en los últimos veinte años en Colombia y sin duda, de sus resultados depende que el Estado se fortalezca institucionalmente. Se ha estudiado el impacto de esta política a nivel nacional y territorial, sin embargo, son ausentes los estudios en el distrito de Santa Marta. El aporte de este artículo consiste en llenar parcialmente este vacío, a través de la realización de un examen de la gestión descentralizada de uno de los servicios sociales de mayor impacto, el sector de educación en el distrito de Santa Marta. Para ello se revisan los principales indicadores de gestión de este sector, mostrando que el crecimiento de la matrícula del sector oficial ha contribuido con un avance significativo en la cobertura bruta de los distintos niveles educativos, acompañado de un retroceso en la calidad de la educación en los colegios públicos.******The “decentralization” is one of the most important public policies implemented in Colombia in the last twenty years and, undoubtedly, its outcomes are decisive for the institutional strengthening of the State. The impact of this policy at the national and territorial level has been studied thoroughly; nonetheless, an absence is noticeable with respect to specific studies on the matter of Santa Marta District. The present article contributes to an examination of the decentralized management of public education in the district of Santa Marta. The main management indicators are thus revised, showing that the growth in enrollment has expanded the gross coverage of public education at all levels, accompanied by a backward trend in quality.
