The country’s school children finished in the middle of those from other Latin nations in the Latin Business Chronicle education index.
The index seeks to measure, among other variables, the preparedness of students based on tests they take.
Uruguay and Argentina were listed as the best prepared of students in 19 countries. The index uses five variables including the percentage of young people who are in school.
Costa Rica was put in 11th position in the Index. At the bottom were, as expected, Guatemala and Haiti.
Latin Business Chronicle, based in Miami, Florida, offers key market intelligence through extensive rankings, indexes and statistics, it said in a release.
