The present study estimates the impact of the internal armed conflict in the education coverage in the Bolivar Department between the years 1995 and 2008 through a double logarithmic regression analysis through an ordinary least square method. The explanation variables are; homicides, kidnapping and forced displacement and one dummy variable which is the Democratic Security Policy.) the best regression was determined by the Akaike Information Criteria (CIA). The educational coverage reported a high correlation with the kidnapping rate. Forced displacement and democratic security where associated to educational coverage. A positive impact of the democratic security policy is observed given the fact that since the beginning of its implementation, educational coverage has varied positively.
