The Laboratory for Research and Innovation in Education for Latin America and the Caribbean – SUMMA – and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States - OECS - through the Knowledge and Innovation Exchange Hub for Latin America and the Caribbean (KIX LAC), with the support of IDRC, launched the first issue of the Educational Research Journal (available in Spanish only).

Maciel Morales Aceitón, KIX LAC researcher and editor of this first edition, highlighted the importance of these spaces for scientific dissemination to make regional problems in the education sector visible in the face of various crisis situations.

The journal is the result of exhaustive work to compile and present studies and research presented at the 1st Symposium "Educating in Times of Crisis and Emergencies", held in April 2022, focused on depicting the reality of education in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. The journal explores global problems from a local point of view, such as the challenges of educating during a pandemic and the multiple emergencies affecting the region. It analyzes how these situations impact education systems and the socio-emotional well-being of various educational actors and presents strategies and alternatives to overcome these challenges.
