Mérida educators on need for comprehensive education reform in México

México’s education system was thrust back into the national spotlight in recent months after tensions between the teacher’s union and the Mexican government led to violent clashes in Oaxaca state. The CNTE (National Coordination of Education Workers), México’s dissident faction of the larger National Union of Education Workers (SNTE), was protesting what the government had claimed were progressive education reforms.

While some believe the new reforms are tackling the root of the issue in holding teacher’s accountable for the quality of education being provided, others point to systemic issues as the main source of México’s crippling education system.
