Inclusive Education and Cultural Diversity in Latin America

Néstor López

Abstract


The paper focuses on the challenges which educational equity policies are faced with in Latin America –a region characterized by its great cultural diversity. After discussing equity and diversity conceptualizations and debates, the paper gives a brief overview of social and cultural heterogeneity in Latin American. The paper then identifies factors and dynamics of the educational system –in particular teaching at secondary school level, which represent an obstacle to the goal of education for all.
