Education for All: Mexico's Progress in Education for Marginalized Communities

WISE Channel

June 22, 2015

Improving all aspects of the quality of education was one of the goals defined at the World Education Forum in Dakar in 2000. A country that has progressed considerably to achieve this objective is Mexico.

Mexican community education institutions have worked hard to improve the teaching quality and attendance rates in rural and marginalized areas. As a result, it is now more common to find classrooms full of attentive students, even in remote and marginalized regions of Mexico.

CONAFE, the National Council for Education Development, helped to allocate more resources to rural and marginalized communities, equipping classrooms and providing materials for all students. It supports the needs of students living below the poverty line.

Communities need a minimum number of students for a state school to be established. If there are only between 5 and 30 children in a particular educational cycle age range - preschool, elementary or middle school - CONAFE builds the facility and provides a young volunteer teacher. Today, up to 96% of rural teachers are certified and well trained. Supervisors check on their work on a regular basis and help them set education achievement goals.

Despite the progress, Mexico has a long way to go in education. According to official figures, around 3 million children are still out of the school.
