  The World Bank reports that low teacher effectiveness causes children attending public schools in Latin America and the Caribbean to miss the equivalent of one school day every week. Public education in Latin America is plagued by teacher absenteeism, low pay and poor school leadership; all contribute to this troubling inefficiency.. Latin America has enjoyed significant growth in recent years.   In December , the OECD released the results for the first PISA-D examination, which included four Latin American countries: Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Paraguay. Combined with the data from previous PISA reports, the PISA-D results paint a troubling picture of the state of learning environments in Latin American countries.

The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) assessment, which is coordinated by the OECD, is the most well known international assessment of learning outcomes. The first PISA study was carried out in and since then it was repeated every three years. The study is not select students by grade, but by age and only tests year-olds, whatever their school level.

Cuba outperforms both Latin American and Caribbean as well as many other middle-income countries in the most important indices of education, public health and hygiene. [6] The World Bank points out that the development of good education systems is vital to the future of Latin America and the Caribbean. This paper examines advances in educational assessments in several countries of Latin America, including Latin American participation in a variety of international efforts. The paper identifies issues and problems and suggests how assessment programs in this region can be used more effectively to improve the quality of education. 1.
