Educational Challenges in Honduras and Consequences for Human Capital and Development

Honduras shows great disparities in education. Despite being one of the countries in the Central American region that spends the highest percentage of its national budget on education, it exhibits some of the lowest performance. The challenges that it faces are formidable, and include addressing illiteracy among rural populations, improving access to secondary school, increasing enrollment in post-secondary schools, and improving overall educational quality. In this brief, we review the educational landscape in Honduras, including literacy, K-12 education, and workforce development.
