Mexico's Ministry of Public Education (Secretaría de Educación Pública abbreviated SEP) had a "remarkable progress" in preschool, technical and higher education according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Report on Education for 2017.

SEP assures that the results confirm "the progress of the Education Reform implemented by the current federal administration.

The Education Reform implied a series of benefits to the country since it has promoted technical education, the relation of young people with the labor market has improved and teacher salaries have increased in recent years.

According to the OECD, 32% of new students chose a university major in areas related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics, a figure that places Mexico 5% above the average and among the top six OECD countries in this indicator.

The OECD indicates that the proportion of young people aged 25 to 34 who do not have a high school education has decreased by 10% in the last 16 years, from 63% in 2000 to 53% in 2016.

During the same period, the proportion of young adults who finished higher education increased from 17% to 22%.
