Project Description

According to the World Bank, this project will boost the use of statistical information in the Guatemalan education system to promote evidence-based decision-making. A key component of the project will allow for MINEDUC to have access to information to reduce gaps in education services across gender, geographic locations, ethnic groups, and income level. The main results sought are as follows:

  1. Assess the Ministry of Education's (MINEDUC) management system and create a resulting action plan
  2. Technical MINEDUC staff is taught to better use data for informing policy-making
  3. The Sistema de Registros Educativos (SIRE) is strengthened under the action plan in result 1
  4. SIRE's improvements allow it to predict school dropout. 

The project will be implemented by the Dirección de Planificacion Educativa agency. Indigenous groups may be impacted by this project.
