Education Reform Organization Says Public Funds Are Being Mishandled

May 12, 2014

The education reform organization Mexicanos Primero claimed last week that 35 billion pesos ($2.7 billion) from the country’s education budget are diverted each year to union leaders and people who are listed on the payroll but do not actually interact with students.

David Calderón, the director of Mexicanos Primero, said that this amount is equivalent to 95 million pesos wasted each day, which he said could be used to enroll all of the country’s 3-year-olds in preschool, provide scholarships for 6 million young people or remodel 35,780 schools.

According to Mexicanos Primero, these figures were calculated using data from the census of Mexico’s public education system carried out earlier this year by the National Statistics Institute (INEGI), which revealed that 298,000 of Mexico’s teachers are not actually assigned classes, but still earn 10,000 pesos a month.

Mexicanos Primero President Claudio X. González said that these figures do not include data from schools in Oaxaca, Chiapas and Michoacán, where teachers refused to collaborate with the INEGI.
