During the first day, seven international and regional education experts discussed about the state of secondary education and its policies in Latin America, while, the second day consisted of a series of roundtables on the need to rethink secondary education in the LAC region considering the universal aspiration of youth education for all regardless of contexts and circumstances.

The IBE-UNESCO proposed, during the first day, the presentation “10 exploratory clues on the democratization of secondary education in Latin America”. The intervention started with a reflection on the main achievements of the region in secondary education as well as on the pending challenges. Then, it proposed 10 clues of analysis that will allow for a more in-depth study and understanding of some of these issues. The whole discussion has been supported by concrete examples from secondary education programmes and curriculum frameworks of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru.
