Targeting school resources for equity in Chile
This chapter is about resourcing policies targeted at specific groups of students in view of improving equality of opportunities, in particular: socio-economically disadvantaged students, children and youth living in rural areas, Indigenous students, and students with special needs. It deals with educational outcomes for these groups and analyses the main programmes targeted at them. The chapter places particular emphasis on areas of priority for Chile such as effective ways to use extra resources for disadvantaged students, the monitoring of the learning outcomes of specific student groups, and reflecting Indigenous cultures in the Chilean education system. The chapter also reviews strategies for rural education and the provision and funding of special needs education.
