The goal of this initiative is that the government of the Dominican Republic should comply with what is currently established in the regulations, to allocate at least 4% of the Gross Domestic Product of the country to education; a situation that is very far from reality, in which less than 2% is allocated and where limitations and inequity in access to the same can be observed.
