The government of Porfirio Lobo Sosa has invested close to $89 billion Lempiras in education during his last administration; but, despite these efforts, Honduras ranks last in pre-school and primary school coverage.
The latest Central American “State of the Region” shows that since 2011, Honduras has occupied the last place in pre-school and primary school coverage.
Honduras holds 35.7 percent pre-school coverage, and 88 percent primary school coverage.
The educational authorities ensure those rates have risen since 2011. They estimate that in preschools, it has reached 45 percent, and 93 percent in primary school coverage. However, even with those new percentages, Honduras continues to be in the end of the queue.
