Abstract

En el Distrito de Cartagena diversos factores obstaculizan la eficiente asignación de los recursos educativos: no menos del 95% de los recursos del sector se destinan a gastos de personal, el costo promedio por estudiante de un colegio oficial en Cartagena corresponde a sólo un 50% de lo que cuesta en un colegio oficial de Bogotá, y la ampliación de la cobertura educativa se hace con frecuencia a costa de la calidad. Para mejorar los logros y la efectividad de las políticas educativas, es necesario incidir directamente en algunos factores determinantes del aprendizaje. En tal sentido, se debe lograr que los planteles educativos dispongan de bibliotecas bien dotadas, que los rectores asuman un rol de liderazgo dentro del plantel, que se cumpla estrictamente con el número de horas de clases y que se asignen los mejores maestros a primero de primaria. Es preocupante constatar que muchas de estas acciones no son tenidas en cuenta por las autoridades educativas, a pesar de su bajo costo y alta efectividad.
