    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Education in Costa Rica has expanded its coverage in recent years but has lost its quality, especially at the level of higher education, alerted the State of Education report, released this Tuesday. The study highlights positive aspects in Costa Rica´s educational system such as the progressive increase in education funding.

    However, experts warn that there are persistent deficits in the quality of education and learning environments as well as centralized management and slow progress in efficiency and transparency.

    One of the most serious weaknesses is the slow progress in secondary education, since only 46% of young people are graduating from schools in Costa Rica. 99% of the population has some kind of primary education and 93% has completed primary school, but the task in relation to secondary education is even bigger.

    The report also criticizes deficiencies in access and quality of education in rural and urban areas. The population with a college degree increased from 15% in 2000 to over 20% in 2011, while the amount of young people who neither work nor study, called “Ninis” fell from 19% to 13% over the same period.
