Sumario: The authors present ,in this article, results of a research analyzing the overall management of learning distance educational offers of Cycle III General Basic Education for Youth and Adults in Dirección Regional de Educación de Occidente (West Regional Education Bureau). This is an exploratory and descriptive research using qualitative techniques. In order to collect information, questionnaires and interviews were applied to the actors directly involved in this type of learning distance education. Data analysis is presented in analysis categories that support this study: system coordination from management, action planning at projects locations, the organization of learning distance projects locations, implementation of administrative actions and evaluation. Among the key findings are noted: poor communication of the guidelines towards different levels from the macro, meso and micro educational levels, lack of involvement of the educational community, inadequate provision and distribution of financial, human and teaching resources, unsuitable curriculum for the needs of target population, and an inadequate assessment which does not produce inputs to improve this kind of education.
