In 2010 the Education Network organized an event that examined the state of school infrastructure in the region and the financial role of the private sector. Infrastructure and Learning in the Twenty-First Century was held in Santiago, Chile, on October 26 and 27, 2010. This book contains the presentations made at the conference, edited and, in some cases, revised for publication. The chapters of the book follow the conference agenda, which focused on designing, financing, building, and maintaining school buildings.
