The Fifth ‘State of the Region’ Report (Quinto Informe Estado de la Región), launched on August 3 in Guatemala City, gives an update on the main demographic, social, economic, political, and environmental trends, as well as on the process of regional integration in Central America. The report includes a special chapter on education that discusses topics such as the social exclusion of youth aged 15-24, the processes of design, approval, and implementation of education policies, the wide territorial gaps – by age group and income level –, the public financing of education, and the evolution of enrollment rates between 2000 and 2014.
