Emerging Issues in Financial Development: Lessons from Latin America (Latin American Development Forum) by Tatiana Didier
English | Dec. 17, 2013 | ISBN: 0821398288 | 586 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

Since the 1990s, the financial systems in developing and developed countries have gained in soundness, depth, and diversity, prompted in part by a series of financial sector and macroeconomic reforms aimed at fostering a market-driven economy in which finance plays a central role. Latin America has been one of the regions at the forefront of these changes and offers a good laboratory of where the challenges in financial development lie. Despite all the gains in financial development, there is still a nagging contrast between the intensity of financial sector reforms implemented over the past 20 years in many countries and the actual size and depth of their financial systems. In the case of Latin America, in many respects it remains underdeveloped by international comparisons.

Great Teachers: How to Raise Student Learning in Latin America and the Caribbean (Latin American Development Forum)

Great Teachers: How to Raise Student Learning in Latin America and the Caribbean (Latin American Development Forum) by Barbara Bruns
English | Oct. 28, 2014 | ISBN: 1464801517 | 375 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

The seven million teachers of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) are the critical actors in the region's efforts to improve education quality and raise student learning levels, which lag far behind those of OECD countries and East Asian countries such as China. This book documents the high economic stakes around teacher quality, benchmarks the current performance of LAC's teachers, and delineates the key issues. These include low standards for entry into teacher training, poor quality training programs that are detached from the realities of the classroom, unattractive career incentives, and weak support for teachers once they are on the job.
