WHAT IS THE IDB’s WORK IN EDUCATION?
International evidence shows that quality education is fundamental for economic growth and development.
The Inter-American Development Bank supports Latin American and Caribbean countries in their efforts to promote effective teaching and learning among all children and youth in the region.
All Latin American countries score below the OECD average and have high percentages of students who do not have basic knowledge and skills.
The purpose of the ALAS-BID awards is to recognize and strengthen the commitment of teachers and education institutions who dedicate their work to early childhood development in Latin American and the Caribbean.
