Abstract

This work explores the degree of intergenerational transmission of education for a sample of more than 15 developing countries for the geographical area that makes up the Latin American region, over a time horizon from 1870 to 2010. The quantification of this transmission has allowed us to observe considerably high intergenerational correlation indices, above 0.6, which shows a very high educational transmission from one generation to the next, greatly limiting the patterns of evolution and development and thus stagnating overall growth. In this sense, it documents how this trend towards a lack of intergenerational educational mobility has been one of the reasons for the stagnation of economic growth and development in this region.
