Listed author(s):
  • Neira, Isabel


La educacion de la poblacion es un factor condicionante del desarrollo economico, tal y como se ha puesto de manifiesto en numerosos trabajos empiricos, de los que realizaremos una breve sintesis en este trabajo. Analizamos la situacion de la educacion en los paises en vias de desarrollo, comparando el escenario actual, finales de la decada de los noventa, en cuanto a tasas de analfabetismo y escolaridad, con las que estos paises presentaban en decadas anteriores. La educacion juega un importante papel en el desarrollo economico y social de los paises, existe una preocupacion cada vez mayor de los organismos internacionales por el reparto de la riqueza, asi como la necesidad de lograr un entorno social que permita lograr que el crecimiento sea sostenido y alcance al mayor porcentaje de poblacion. En este trabajo analizaremos cuales son las politicas de cooperacion en materia educativa que Europa y EEUU llevan a cabo en los paises menos desarrollados, asi como su influencia final en el nivel educativo de la poblacion. Realizaremos un enfasis especial en el caso Latinoamericano, tanto en este apartado de cooperacion como en su situacion actual.
