Equity, inclusion among challenges of education in Latin America

The study was developed by the Institute of Higher Education of Latin America and the Caribbean-UNESCO and results were presented succinctly at the Concertation Forum and follow-up of the 3rd Regional Conference on Higher Education of the academic program of the University-2022 Congress.

From a survey conducted in the region, it was learned that from 2019 to 2000 gross rate of access to higher education doubled, thus favoring sectors of the upper classes of society.

Members of economically-favored social groups have seven times more chances of accessing a university, says the document, which will be presented late March.

According to the research, the average graduation rate in Latin America and the Caribbean is 46%, showing another challenge in the region related to quality and relevance of academic processes.

According to the report, only 1.2% of university students can travel to other countries to continue part or all of their studies and that most of them do so for universities outside the region, which shows another university access gap.
