Quality Education at the centre of the International Fe Alegría Congress

“The improvement system of quality education is already working, in the street, at school and open for debate and discussion. We have gone from a dream to implementing an improvement system for quality education. " These were the closing words of Víctor Murillo, Colombia Fe y Alegría Director, at the International Congress: " A quality overview from the Pedagogy Perspective".

The congress lasted for four intensive days of debate among more than 200 people ( teachers, Fe y Alegría members, government representatives and other organizations) from 16 countries, mainly focused on the evaluation programme of quality education, where the institution is working since 2003. Attending this encounter was a small Entreculturas delegation made up of our director Agustín Alonso SJ, our deputy director, Luis Arancibia, and several people from coordination.

The International Fe y Alegría Federation ratified its willingness for dialogue with all in order to promote public quality education not only in Latin America and the Caribbean but also in Africa, where the organization has been working for the past three years. Thus, Víctor Murillo valued the recognition of the Education Ministries in Paraguay, Colombia, Guatemala and el Salvador of Fe y Alegría´s work.
