“Education is a human right and a fundamental social duty of the state, it is democratic, free and obligatory” (Venezuelan Constitution, 1999: Art. 102). A clear statement of how the Venezuelan government should treat, respect and implement education. Education in Venezuela is intended to be an integral part of the democracy ideals stated in the constitution. But Venezuelan education has many flaws making it challenging for this sector to be an integral part of democracy development and promotion. Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías, the Venezuelan president for the past ten years, embarked on a revolution to correct the flaws in the Venezuelan democracy by making numerous changes in all sectors and institutions of the country. This thesis explores the motives and degree of success to the different changes Chávez has made to the educational sector in the last ten years.
