Chilean president signs education reform pact

Chilean President has signed an education reform pact after a debate involving all the country's political parties.

The National Education Reform Accord, which is to be submitted to the legislature for approval, proposes a general law of education to replace the existing national law on teaching, which was instituted in March 1990 under former Chilean military leader Augusto Pinochet. The move marks a triumph for the thousands of high-school students that have been campaigning for education reform since March last year. The provisions of the newly proposed law include quality education as a constitutional obligation instead of a guarantee of access to education, and the creation of the Education Overseer and the Education Quality Assurance Agency.
