Thirty-one percent of adolescent women in Ecuador do not graduate from secondary school. In indigenous populations, this number is even higher and stands at 44 percent.
Certified teachers can apply to teach in Ecuador’s public schools or private international schools. A teaching license is always required in these institutions. Salaries in Ecuador will vary dramatically based on qualifications. Teachers without experience or a TEFL certificate can find work in language institutes, although these teaching jobs generally pay approximately $4 - 5 USD per hour (this is a modest but livable salary in Ecuador). However, qualified teachers can expect to earn more than this in public or private schools, some of which will also provide benefits such as accommodation.
