    What about education in Mexico?

    education in Mexico is in a difficult stage. Basic education teachers are on strike for a third day, as some of the schools National Polytechnic Institute (IPN), the country’s second largest public university. This time the political crisis of public education has sharp edges pointing directly at one of the men confidence of President Enrique Peña Nieto.

    the destabilization in the education sector mainly affects the care of her, Aurelio Nuño, who until recently was listed as a candidate viable for the next presidential elections.

    the greatest triumph of Nuño was the implementation of educational reform. a reform for which he was widely criticized peñista government promoted because they focused completely in the evaluation of teachers and not on other important aspects such as infrastructure of schools or educational project review in depth. Many critics saw this move as una tactic to placate the largest union in Latin America, the National Union of Education Workers and its division, the National Coordinator of Education Workers.

    currently, the union leader of the SNTE supports educational reform, but the former leader (now imprisoned for tax evasion and organized crime, among others), Elba Esther Gordillo opposed it.

    Derived from the SNTE is the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE), a split that rejects the accommodating stance SNTE with government and controls the country’s poorest states such as Guerrero, Oaxaca and Chiapas, but are present in all states. Since its founding in 1979, the CNTE has represented a fraction very problematic for the government.


    the educational reform that has driven the current government turns on the evaluation of teachers on a standardized test that measures the memorization of the contents of the educational program. The tension of the implementation of the test was such that only in the state of Michoacan, the government had to mobilize 5 thousand police elements to carry out the first stage

    Teachers who oppose this test, including the former leader of the SNTE, Elba argued that it was impossible to make such an assessment and blame the teachers of the results, as is the Mexican state that is responsible of teacher education and educational backwardness of Mexico is not entirely the responsibility of teachers.

    Oponerse Education Reform has left nearly 3,000 unemployed teachers not evaluated and some arrested for participating in demonstrations accused of crimes of vandalism, theft, fraud and even attempted murder. CNTE currently un sit outside the offices of the SEP in the hope of echar behind education reform and repair their ravages.

    not filed in the second opportunity for evaluation, thousands of teachers will be laid off

    the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) joined a 24-hour strike Tuesday in solidarity. While indoors are not exempt from problems, a few steps, the Faculty of Economics went on strike because the authorities of the institution are forcing some teachers to retire against their will.

    the threats continue, if not present at the second opportunity for evaluation, thousands of teachers will be dismissed and the strikers were deducted strike days and if it exceeds four will be fired adviritó Nuño.


    Meanwhile, students of Polytechnic Institute national Nuño challenge authority. vocational schools , a type of school that is part of the IPN, is unemployed for some weeks. Although both sides say they are willing to talk in more than a month has not established any dialogue between those involved.

    the strike began on a change published in the Official Gazette in which National Polytechnic Institute was in charge of the Undersecretary of Higher Education and not the office of secretary of Education, as it had been since its inception in 1936, but a few days later confirmed.

    a change which, according to the strikers, was out of the agreements the polytechnic and the government came in resolving the strike two years ago, extended shutdown cost the semester many students.

    students have sought solution conflict in the interior minister, Miguel Angel Osorio Chong, who had una memorable participation in last strike and also also painted as one of the strongest men in the government of Peña Nieto, but he has already submitted which is a matter of SEP … perhaps trying to break his opponent to the strongest presidential candidate.
