 EPAA Vol. 11 No. 17 Gorostiaga: Secondary Education in Argentina during the 1990s: The Limits of a Comprehensive Reform ...
During the 1990s Argentina experienced a profound reform of the educational sector as part of a general restructuring of the state, as well as of attempts to 'modernize' the country and adapt to international economic competition.
In the case of Argentina, there are indications that while the process of restructuring has faced significant barriers, it is at the level of reculturing where reform strategies are more in need of refinement, and of securing the support of educational actors as well as the different levels of government.

 International Developments in Clinical Legal Education
The role of clinical education in promoting reflection on the discrepancies between the theory and practice of the law is particularly significant in the very traditional context of the Argentine academy, with its dogmatic adherence to formalistic models of legal theory and education.
This has influenced the development of the educational experience, placing students in a context in which the social and political objectives of their work are explicitly enunciated, playing an important role in the selection of cases and the nature of their clinical experience.
The failure of clinical legal education to develop further in Argentina appears to be largely attributable to obstacles and resistance presented by conservative attitudes to legal education within universities and the legal profession.

 International Higher Education--3/CY4
It is an extreme example of this Latin American model of higher education, one characterized by free access obtained with the simple completion of secondary school, dominated by professional studies, scarce research, and a demoralized professoriate, composed largely of part-time professors.

 EIAL X1 - Politics and Education in Argentina, 1946-1962
The subject of Mónica Rein's Politics and Education in Argentina, 1946-1962 is precisely what its title indicates: Peronism and the manifold impacts of Peronism on the education system, top to bottom; and the politics of de-Peronization, from 1955 to 1962, and the many consequences of that enterprise for the educational system.
The Peronist section follows with a chapter on "Children and Education in Peronist Thought and Policy," which examines the close personal attention the General gave to reforming education --something of a national disgrace, particularly away from the big cities, in the 1940s.
His removal by the military in 1962 left Argentina in a desperate muddle, the tragic aspects of which would become apparent during the incipient civil war of the mid-1960s and the appalling sequence of events that began with General Onganía's seizure of power in 1966.
