12 Lessons from Latin America

Authors: Stephanía Duarte Mora and David Towell

Continuing Conversations about Advancing Inclusive Schooling

Towards the end of 2018 and near the beginning of 2019, David Towell and his Colombian colleague, Stephanía Duarte, made two journeys through three countries of Latin America - Bolivia, Colombia and Peru - exploring how national family associations are promoting educational change and exploring the strategies that progressive public and private schools are using to achieve their own transformation.

They report on lessons from these journeys in two complementary papers, both available in English and Spanish.
