dc.description.abstractEducation is one of the key driving forces in determining social and economic success in a country. Costa Rica's education system very specifically aims to close the gap between the rich and the poor and improve the overall quality of living and economy in the country. The primary and secondary education systems function extremely well in the private level, but are not as successful publicly. This is important because the University that is economically accessible to everyone (virtually free) is not only the best University in the country, but also competitive. The aims behind having a free quality university education are an attempt to even out the playing field socially and economically when applying to college. In terms of the labor sector, many Costa Ricans take time off to work before going to the universities after graduating from high school. This is due to the easy access to jobs at call centers that pay well for those with little education. Costa Ricans aren't utilizing their full capabilities in labor force participation. Through improving the education system in Costa Rica, citizens will be driven to access their full capabilities.en_US
