    Education in Costa Rica

    As Costa Rica’s economy has developed in recent decades, the education system that helped propel the country to upper middle-income status now needs reform to respond to rising expectations and changing demands for skills. New challenges are emerging: economic growth has recently slowed, inequality is widening and productivity growth is weak. How can Costa Rica improve both the quality and equity of its education system while also addressing efficiency challenges? This report assesses Costa Rica’s policies and practices against best practice in education from across the OECD and other reference countries in the Latin American region. It analyses its education system’s major strengths and the challenges it faces, from early childhood education and care to tertiary education. It offers recommendations on how Costa Rica can improve quality and equity to ensure strong, sustainable and inclusive growth. This report will be of interest in Costa Rica as well as other countries looking to raise the quality, equity and efficiency of their education systems.

    La Recommandation de 2013 du Conseil de l’OCDE sur l'égalité hommes-femmes en matière d'éducation, d'emploi et d'entrepreneuriat recommande d'adopter des pratiques qui favorisent l’égalité entre hommes et femmes en matière d’éducation, qui encouragent les politiques et les conditions de travail favorables à la vie de famille pour permettent aux pères et aux mères de concilier leurs horaires de travail et leurs responsabilités familiales, et qui aident les femmes à prendre davantage part à l’emploi dans le secteur privé et dans le secteur public. Cette recommandation préconise également d'augmenter la représentation des femmes aux postes décisionnels, en supprimant les discriminations liées aux écarts de salaire entre hommes et femmes, en encourageant toutes les mesures nécessaires pour que cesse le harcèlement sexuel au travail, en réduisant l’écart entre hommes et femmes dans l’activité entrepreneuriale, et en tenant compte des besoins particuliers des femmes issues de groupes minoritaires défavorisés et de l’immigration.

    People on the move: growing mobility, increasing diversity (OECD Education Today Blog)

    In August 2015, a newspaper published a story about Sam Cookney’s commute to work. Pretty boring, one would think, as long commutes are nothing new for most of us. However, Sam’s story is not so common. He works in London and commutes, several times per month, from Barcelona!
