Abstract

We discuss the findings of an evaluation of the implementation process of the Colombian Full-Day Schooling programme. The assessment draws on a systems thinking-based approach to delve into the complexities of this social intervention, seen as a system operating within a decentralised governance system. Our research design allowed us to link deficiencies in how the programme arrives at subregions with contradictions between its design -which highly depends on school autonomy- and structural tendencies in Colombia towards recentralising decision-making in national authorities. Questions about how policy debates at different levels -including the international one- shape national education systems are left open.
