The Latin American Learning Barometer

The Latin America Learning barometer is an interactive tool developed to showcase the state of education in Latin America, and allow users to see how it compares over time and across countries. The barometer uses the latest available data, and is the third in a series that illustrates the state of education across world regions. The previous barometers can be found here: the Arab Learning Barometer and the Africa Learning Barometer.

The barometer measures the quality of education and learning by examining four areas: getting into school, staying in school, whether students are learning basic skills while in school, and the inequality of learning outcomes. The barometer includes data for 20 countries in Latin America, and covers the period from 2000-2013.
