...remember, 61% has only basic schooling...
MrPilot, the article says "59.9 of immigrants has basic and secondary education, and 37.5% has higher education" (el 59,9% de los inmigrantes posee educación básica y media y un 37,5% cuenta con educación superior). these are the percentajes for immigrants over 18 y.o., according to the article.

Now, for immigrants in general, the percentages are, quoting the article: 4.5% no study; 19.4% only basic education; 42.7% secondary education; 20% proffesional degree and 11%, a technical one.

comparing India and comparing Denmark wouldn't be appropiate, India being (literally) like 250 times more populated than Denmark. But comparing a city of 8 million with a country of 17 million is not that unappropiate. Of course it's not really possible to compare countries and cities, but what I was trying to point out is that, if Chile performs worse in the PISA test than the capital city of a country with so many social and economic issues as Colombia, then, education in Chile is not that impressive.

Croatian hotels charging 30-70 Euro; and Chilean hotels 90-300, just means that hotels in Chile are more expensive . Perhaps the hotel industry in Croatia is much better developed, dunno. It might be that, after all, Croatia receives 20 million foreign visitors/year; and Chile, 4-6 millon year (don't remember the exact number).

But the median monthly wage in Croatia is USD 1,173 (source is the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe's Statistical Database); whereas in Chile is USD 793 or CLP 554,493 (source).

Uruguay: 98.6
Costa Rica: 97.4
Venezuela: 97.1
Chile: 96.9

Mexico: 94.9
Colombia:94.7
Paraguay:94.7
Ecuador: 94.4
Panama: 94.1
Peru: 94.1
DR: 93.8
Bolivia: 92.5
PR: 92.4
Brazil: 92.0

Honduras: 89.0
El Salvador: 88.5
Guatemala: 81.3
Nicaragua: 78.0

So, no, Southern Cone countries are not exactly the three most literate countries in the region. And there isn't that much difference in literacy rates for most Latin American countries, even if some of them have a much larger urban population (like the Southern Cone ones) which, in theory, would make it easier to alphabetize the whole population. Chile or Argentina is like 95% urban, but Colombia or Peru are 75-80% urban.

There are tribes in reservoirs, so Chile will never be at a 100% literacy. The education among the population are measured in PISA score. go ahead and post the PISA score

I'm dealing with children here

1) No way 40%of the peruvian nannies and haitians have higher education. They come from the poorest parts of the poorest countries in latinamerica and haiti. I can't find any studies done over the last 2 years. consider 750 000 immigrants entered chile just in the last 4 years




2) Colombia is a hell hole I'm never re-visiting and if you want to compare the entire country vs a city then you are a moron.

3) You idiot need to look at the ****ing map I posted; croatia is my fav country in europe besides norway and sweden and I will tell you for the last time that Chile dealt in european levels of pricing, croatia not! Check the IMF categorization map I posted. Croatia isn't blue. u stubbon sob

well, Haitians in Chile have a low (formal) education level; other countries, not really.

Peru or Colombia are not amongst the poorest countries of LatAm, the immigrants from these countries come from different regions. Venezuela is now, but their immigrants in Chile have a high educative level.

we don't need you visiting, many other people visits Colombia. Foreign tourists grows at a faster rate in Colombia than in any other LatAm country, and it's been so for years.

Chile is quite poor and underdeveloped. Still lags behind most European countries. Education is still quite poor there and you show it with your ignorance and stuborness, my Chilean friend. Croatia is now a high income country: https://euobserver.com/tickers/142247

Argentina isn't particularly prosperous. It's a second Venezuela in the making.

What ever happened to the prosperous Southern Cone? LOL.

Because it proves you wrong and this lame ass thread.

Because Argentina and the Southern Cone is not some special entity that stands out above all other neighbouring countries like a lot of people are claiming here when in fact it's a really troubled country from an economic standpoint.
