La Campaña Latinoamericana por el Derecho a la Educación (CLADE) es una red de organizaciones de la sociedad civil fuertemente comprometida con la plena realización del derecho humano a la educación pública, gratuita, sin discriminación de ningún tipo, con justicia social y ambiental para todas las personas. En ese sentido, hemos venido trabajando, desde hace más de una década, la temática relativa al financiamiento adecuado, con recursos públicos, por el fortalecimiento de la educación pública, cuestionando las tendencias a la privatización y mercantilización en educación. La presente publicación – una continuidad de esos esfuerzos – resulta de una investigación con el propósito de evidenciar si y en qué grado los marcos legales de la región permiten el lucro en la educación en su etapa obligatoria. El estudio incluyó a nueve países de América Latina y el Caribe: Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Haití, Honduras, México, Paraguay y Perú. Nuestro punto de partida y referencial para realizarla es el marco de los derechos humanos y su reafirmación por encima de los intereses económicos.
