Education has not always been a government priority in Ecuador, but over the last ten years, four important legal documents have been produced placing education as a main priority of the state. These documents have guided policy change and implementation focusing on improving the quality of, and access to, education. Because of these changes, Ecuador has seen visible improvement in its education system. The following research is a case study of the education reform that took place in Ecuador from 2006-2015. An analysis of the Ten Year Education Plan as a policy document, and as contributing to quality education, is included.
