Educational Reform and Educational Policies: the Ideological Legitimation for Social Stability

  • Orlando Albornoz
Part of the St Antony’s Series book series


Our purpose in this chapter is to discuss how educational policies for educational reform can become instruments for social stability. Governments are keen on educational reform, since education is a common expectation in any society. In recent years it has been included in the political agenda in different countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Examples that come immediately to mind are Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico and Puerto Rico — all countries where educational reform has been an important part of the political programme of their governments.
