This project will help Education 2020 so it can keep on impulsing and monitoring public policies that aim to improve Chilean children's education, mobilizing citizens to demand it and working directly with schools and its administration department. If you are far away from Chile, you can help your country's education here.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Chile has one of the most segregated education system of the world and the quality of children's education, specially of the ones that come from more vulnerable contexts,is far away from first world's standards.We need to avoid that 40.000 students graduate from high school without understanding what they read,in order to get our country to develop with justive.This is the challenge that Educacion 2020 has decided to face,to ensure that public policies have a good impact in quality for everyone.
How will this project solve this problem?
Educacion 2020 promotes public policies that improve quality and equity in Chilean education. We do this by generating technical proposals, following up educational laws that are passed by the congress, meeting with all the educational actors to know their proposals, mobilizing citizens so they demand change and working on the field with school principals and school administration departments.
Potential Long Term Impact
More than 4 million Chilean children attend school. An educational reform means that all Chilean children will have a real opportunity to get a high quality education that opens up their futures. This benefits students, and the whole country that will develop not only economically, but socially.
