A picture is worth 10,000 words #14: Registered Students in the educational system

January 2, 2007

As promised, below is the breakdown of the number of students registered at each level of the Venezuelan educational system from pre-school to university. Curiously, the strongest growth since Chavez became President is at the University level. The more things change the more they stay the same, but it makes sense, if you created a Ministry of Higher Education, it somehow follows that the sector will get more resources. There is little that is “revolutionary” about the chart, but as John said: “We all want to change the world”, but it seems easier to make people believe you are actually changing it!
