Abstract

Utilizando informaciones inéditas recopiladas en el marco de un amplio programa de mejora de la gestión del sistema educativo, este articulo analiza los niveles de satisfacción de los docentes de educación primaria en Madagascar. En base a la estimación de modelos multinivel, se identifican como principales factores de insatisfacción los bajos niveles salariales y las dificultades en el cobro, los elevados ratios alumno-profesor, la precariedad en el empleo, la carencia de formación continua y la falta de infraestructuras básicas y material docente. Las tareas de control realizadas por el director también afectan negativamente a la satisfacción, lo que apunta a que, en las escuelas malgaches, ni los docentes ni, probablemente, la dirección de los centros han logrado asumir culturas organizativas basadas en la confianza y colaboración entre sus miembros. Estos resultados son susceptibles de nutrir los debates de políticas educativas, tanto en Madagascar como en otros muchos países en desarrollo.
