The Secretariat of Public Education of Mexico (SEP), the OAS Office of Education, Science and Technology (OEST/OAS) and the UNESCO Regional Office for Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (UNESCO/OREALC Santiago) welcome you to the webpage of the Regional Education Indicators Project (PRIE). Here you will find up-to-date information on the educational situation of the 34 countries of the Interamerican system, highlighting progress and challenges. This information gives material for reflection, particularly useful in the management and definition of educational policies that support progress toward the achievement of the educational goals of the Summits of the Americas.
The PRIE project was launched by an agreement among the Heads of State and Government in the Second Summit , with the goal of having reliable and internationally comparable indicators which are relevant to educational progress in the countries of the Americas. The project focuses, in addition, on strengthening national education information systems and on greater dissemination and use of educational information in decision making.
