School effectiveness research (SER) has flourished since the 1980s, especially in industrialized countries like the USA, Canada, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Norway, Australia and New Zealand. Yet, school effectiveness studies in Latin America have so far not attracted worldwide attention in the international debate. For this reason, the following article provides an overview of the SER in Latin America in the last 40 years. The author illustrates the developmental history of educational effectiveness and presents some main fields of research and a few characteristics of the Latin American SER. Finally, she discusses central results based on two international studies that consider the different socioeconomics and cultural contexts in Latin America.
