22 GOING TO SCHOOL IN LATIN AMERICA One of the most significant changes introduced by the LFE was the design of a new structure for the Argentine educational system. The new structure extended compulsory education from seven to ten years. One year of preschool education had been made compulsory, and the seven years of primary education have been replaced by General Basic Education (EGB), which consists of nine years of compulsory instruction divided into three-year cycles. Finally, Polimodal, a post-compulsory level that lasts three years, has replaced a five-year secondary education.

The Law emphasizes the importance of ‘‘educational justice’’ and elimination of educational inequalities. The new Law also establishes that all of the provincial systems should tend to a single structure, gradually returning to the division between primary and secondary education. In short, these laws provide some interesting proposals for change, but it should be kept in mind that laws in themselves do not necessarily change the real world, especially in Argentina, where we have a long history of regulations that are not always followed in practice.
