Legislative Commission To Study Education

April 23, 2004

A special commission of the Legislative Assembly was created this week to analyze the country’s education system and make recommendations for its improvement.

The commission will take three months to generate ideas to improve the quality, fairness and equality of Costa Rican education and its financing, according to congressman Mario Redondo, of the Social Christian Unity Party. This deadline could be extended as the commission works to propose bills and establish or revise initiatives for changes to the system, he added.

The proposal for the commission arose after a series of forums on the topic coordinated by the Ministry of Public Education and the National Council of Rectors, according to proponents Redondo and congresswoman Elvia Navarro, of the Patriotic Bloc.

Education is fundamental to the future development of the country, in the fight to combat violence and in the formation of quality Costa Ricans, Redondo said.

Before any improvements to education can be made, it is essential legislators pass a fiscal reform bill, Navarro added.
