The objective of the research is to analyze the right to education based on indicators of educational quality in the Mercosur countries (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela). This is one of the measured results of the Doctoral Thesis titled The Right to Education in Mercosur member countries: a comparative study. In order to facilitate the achievement of the proposed objective, a qualitative bibliographical and documentary research was carried out. The documentary source consisted of the reports of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), analyzing the public expenditure on education and the quality index of education of the members of the bloc. In addition, the discussion was based on the comparison and comparison of the data of the educational indicators of the Mercosur member states with the literature of the area. In spite of the fact that the countries of the bloc have in the last decades shown the expansion of investments and also the coverage of vacancies for basic education, this growth was not linked to quality, with the exception of Argentina and Uruguay, which are the countries with the educational indicators and are among the best placed, if we compare the other Latin American countries as well. This framework presents itself as an obstacle not only to the social, political and economic development of the countries, but also to the consolidation of an effective process of regional integration within Mercosur.
