Education learning outcomes in Latin America and the Caribbean (LATAM) are still insufficient and unequally distributed. Several factors are behind this situation, many of which relate to education funding: low absolute expenditure per student; increasing gaps in spending levels between developed and developing countries; unequal distribution of key education inputs; inefficient use of pedagogical resources and low levels of innovation; and inadequate institutional frameworks that weaken the public sector. Recommendations to address these problems are presented in order to provide not only more investment, but also a more effective and equitable use of resources.
