6 in 10 Young Mexicans Over Age 19 Drop Out of School - OECD

At least six out of 10 young people over age 19 in Mexico have dropped out of school completely, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) warned. The OECD's 2013 Educational Panorama shows that only 12 percent of the population aged 20 to 29 continues in the classroom, which is less than half the average of the OECD's member countries.

Regarding the group who neither study nor work [NiNis], the report indicates that the national average for those aged 15 to 29 years is 24.7 percent; that is, it is the third highest percentage in the organization. Moreover, the percentage increases with age, so for the group aged 25 to 29 the percentage of NiNis rises to 29.5 percent.

The OECD reports that the majority of the population, 64 percent, achieved a lower educational level than the average maximum [educational] level: only 35 percent reached high school classrooms, which represents one of the lowest percentages of the nations that make up this body, above only Portugal and Turkey.

The report stressed that Mexico has the lowest 607rates among young people aged 15 to 19 years: four in ten do not attend school, despite the fact that this age group represents the largest age cohort in the country's history.
