Between 1990 and 2001 state spending on primary education has increased in 130 of the 200 territories mapped here. The largest increase in spending per child was in Australia, followed by Denmark and Luxembourg.

Elsewhere in Asia Pacific there have been spending increases, particularly in Thailand and the Philippines. The average regional per child increase in Asia Pacific is similar to that of South America. There the territory with the biggest increase was Argentina, where 40% of the regionís increase in primary education spending occurred.

"You canít broaden access to primary education unless you have enough teachers trained to teach primary school. You canít train these teachers ... without raising the educational ... levels of the entire society." Adriana Puiggros, 1996
