Education Laws of Four West Coast States Challenged by Mexico Government
The federal government has filed constitutional objections against the education laws of the states of Chiapas, Michoacán, Oaxaca, and Sonora. The government considers these laws to be contrary to the constitutional reform to education passed in February 2013.
The reform required the states to change their regulations according to the constitutional changes. The changes included that teachers will be evaluated in order to obtain a position and periodically examined to keep the position.
According to the federal government, the four states being challenged didn’t comply with that task. That is why President Enrique Peña Nieto decided to take the case to the Supreme Court of Justice (SCJN) so that the Supreme Court may require the states to align their laws with the constitutional reform.
“The federal government affirms its firm conviction to fulfill the congressional mandate,” said spokesperson Eduardo Sánchez on Tuesday.
