In its various sections, the book addresses the following questions: How did education respond during the 1980s to the major sociopolitical and economic changes that affected these countries? How did the changes in the 1980s affect the relationships between education, society, and the state, and what lessons can be learned from the interaction between research and policy that may help in understanding the developmental role of education in the 1990s? And is educational research and policy helping to improve the social condition of minorities in Latin America? This volume will be of interest to scholars and policymakers in Latin American studies, educational research, education policy, and educational planning.

Editorial Reviews

?...effectively argues that education and educational policy are interrelated with political and socioeconomic factors. This point is well illustrated using historical studies from various countries. The need for new educational theory and practice throughout Latin America is well supported in the individual chapters and in the conclusion. This book builds a good foundation for understanding how educational theory in Latin America evolved into what it is now, and gives guidance to the further research and new theories that are necessary to face the challenges of the 1990s.??Compare
