Abstract: 
La demanda de educación depende del conjunto de decisiones que toman los hogares, pero en el área rural la decisión de demandar educación debe ser puesta en un contexto adecuado. Por una parte, la alta participación de menores en actividades destinadas a generar ingresos, hace que, en principio, la demanda de educación deba ser considerada como una no oferta de trabajo. Las decisiones de trabajar en el área rural, a su turno, dependen de la tenencia de tierras y/o de ganado y de las estrategias de los hogares para obtener ingresos, en un escenario caracterizado por la descomposición de la economía campesina.
