Meeting Education for All
Education is critical to developing countries’ economic capacity. According to USAID’s Evaluation to Support Learning: The Evaluation Process of the 7-9th Grade of Educatodos, an estimated 75 percent of Hondurans had not completed the seventh grade and approximately 1.6 million youth and adults of age had not completed the sixth grade in 2001. The number of out-of-school youth in Honduras presents a particular challenge to meeting Education for All (EFA) goals; the process will take years. The following case study examines the overall growth and impact of the Educatodos program in Honduras during the past decade. The case examines the program’s contributions in the areas of access, completion, cost and cost-effectiveness, quality, human resources and staffing, and policy and the enabling environment.
