An Overview

Description

The first of six films about Chile's education system and the significant improvements the country has been making in its reading results, this video gives an overview of the changes made over the past two decades.

Since 1990, when the country returned to democracy, Chile has prioritised education and invested in long-term, systemic changes such as school infrastructure and a new curriculum for the 21st century. Now, the emphasis is on improving the quality of initial teacher training.

Leading academics, Dr Cristian Cox and Dr Gregory Elacqua, and the current Under Secretary of State for Education, Fernando Rojas, offer their views.
