When President Alfredo Stroessner ruled the country from 1954 to 1989, the education system in Paraguay took a further step backward in favor of economic development and keeping a total political control. The increase in education funding helped in raising the salaries of teachers and updating the country's educational curriculum.
Despite the increase the country's children spend only an average of around 700 hours in school, in contrast to 1,500hours in other Latin American countries like Chile. Although children as young as three are eligible to attend preschool, children from ages 7 to 13 are required to attend school. The country has a 92% net primary school attendance rate and while public education is free the rate of dropouts is quite high.
The State University and the Catholic University were the only two universities of Paraguay until the 1990's. Since this period, the government established ten more new universities.
Public and catholic institutions offer a wide range of programs at three levels; the equivalent diplomas of Bachelor, Masters and PhD.
