Abstract
Analysis of poverty in Nicaragua emphasizes the welfare gains from education: non-poor households have higher levels of educational attainment than poor ones (especially in post-primary education), and welfare gains have been associated with higher educational attainment. Despite rather equitable access to primary school, we find that there are substantial inequities in access and quality of preschool and post secondary education between richer and poorer households, between urban and rural areas, and between regions. Furthermore, Nicaragua still falls behind in the Latin America Contexts in primary and secondary education service delivery (both in relation to access and quality).
