Mexico Government vs. Dissident Teachers: Fear Doesn't Travel by Donkey

It is comforting to know that 72 percent of the residents of Mexico City endorse the scrupulous evacuation of the [dissident] teachers of the CNTE [National Coordinating Committee of Education Workers] from the Plaza of the Republic last Sunday and that the popularity of the Head of Government of the Federal District, Miguel Mancera Angel, recovered a little, according to a survey by the Cabinet of Strategic Communication taken on Monday.

But the noteworthy point could be elsewhere: 90 percent of the people interviewed, that is to say, nearly all, think that the CNTE won't remain with its arms crossed and will reactivate its plan of actions and mobilizations, without affected citizens mattering a bit to them.

Into what circle of madness have we fallen? The teachers do what pleases them until the authority chooses to get them to withdraw. They strike back then with tenacity and with the same banner: “throw out the educational reform”. A dialogue that has low probability of success is opened. The teachers feel defrauded and move to confrontation. The authority doubts itself, calculating the costs.
