EDUCO in Ecuador

Despite advances in education, the movement of children from the private to public education system has led to unexpected problems due to a lack of infrastructure to absorb the increasing demand. The low quality of teaching is another challenge being faced by the State, with 36% of primary school students not reaching basic academic performance standards.

Other serious problems facing children and adolescents include teen pregnancy, violence against children both at home and at school, and the consumption of drugs and alcohol at increasingly young ages.
