ZULUAGA, Juan D; ESCOBAR, Diego A  and  HINCAPIE, Juan D. Quality in Education and Transport Infrastructure from the Territorial Accessibility Pont of View. Caldas Department in Colombia as a Study Case. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.6, pp.169-180. ISSN 0718-0764.

In this research, the current relation between the operative characteristics supplied by the transport infrastructure network of the department of Caldas (Colombia) and the results obtained in the Saber 11 test by educational institutions during 2015 is stablished. This test is the one considered by higher education institutions for admission of new students. Geographic coverage for all the Caldas’ schools is calculated based on the transport infrastructure network and the results are analysed according to the grade obtained in the test for each institution. The final results allowed stablishing the direct relation between educational quality supplied and the territorial accessibility conditions to the educational institutions in the department, in terms of average travel time invested. The research identifies the relevance of having educational institutions with high accessibility conditions for the community, which would enhance the quality of education.
