Education & Public Policy in Bogotá:Guarding the Public Interest

  • Juan David Parra

Abstract

High school education appears to be a key variable for the economic prosperity of Bogotá. However, the lack of consideration of quality as a necessary standard for education in the city threatens its potential to positively affect social welfare. One of the main problems emerges from an imprecise conception of education as a public good, condensed in its public policy planning. Therefore, the appliance of more progressive proposals can be suggested to help combine the virtues of market forces and the state’s regulatory power.
