Department of Education (Honduras)
From Researching Virtual Initiatives in Education
The Secretaría de Educación de Honduras (Department of Education of Honduras) in Honduras is the governmental institute that is responsible for education in Honduras and is the equivalent of Ministries of Education of other countries.
The Ministry of Education does not participate in the regulation of university education. By constitutional mandate, the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras (UNAH) or the National Autonomous University of Honduras, "enjoys the exclusive right to organize, lead and develop the higher and vocational education. In the spirit of this mandate was issued the Law on Higher Education (Decree No.142-89 of the National Congress), which states that "The organization, management and development of higher education level is in charge of the National Autonomous University Honduras, by the following bodies:
UNAH manages the Dirección de Educación Superior (Spanish) or Directorate of Higher Education, which is the executive body of the resolutions of the Council for Higher Education. Acts as Secretary's level and its Director is the means of communication and link with higher education institutions. Its organization will be determined in the regulation of the Directorate.
