Mendoza, the best in mathematics

A report from the Argentinos Observatory for Education places Mendoza in the first place in Cuyo. The evaluation was mathematics.


Mendoza is the province with the  best results in mathematics in Cuyo Region . This was evident from a report  by the Argentinos Observatory for Education on learning outcomes in secondary schools.

Mariano Narodowski, professor at the  School of Government of Tocuato Di Tella University explained the  details of this work.

“The results of learning mathematics across the country are very daunting.  The province or district that is best doing is Buenos Aires City and only 53% of students have satisfactory results in mathematics.  Hence the results are worse and if students are from public schools or lower economic strata, the results tend to be weaker. A complicated picture.”

The region

“In the Cuyo Region,  Mendoza is doing a little better than San Luis and San Juan, but we are still far from the ideal of having a satisfactory mathematical education for all students , a daunting picture. The positive thing is that we have the instruments to measure it, which are the Learning tests and that we would have to work, some provinces are doing it, to improve those results.”

“It is not students who fail,  adults fail, both politically and pedagogically to be able to teach better .”

“  Education  in Argentina is bogged down, collapsed, is always standing in the same place as the world progresses and societies progress, it is the problem we have.”

“Sociology in Education has already shown that  the main cause of performance in these tests is the educational level of the parents of the pupils and the socioeconomic level of the family.  So, school has a big challenge with these sectors because it has to match the pitch, create conditions for the advantages to match and the problem is that we are not doing it, when a boy is born in a poor province or municipality we are not guaranteeing that he has more opportunity to  learn  more and better.”

“In the Learning tests there was a very significant improvement in reading learning in all provinces and schools. So significant is that we understand there is a problem with the measuring instrument because it never happens that everyone increases the same and the same way, but still one may think that there were improvements in language.”
