The school year of 2012-2013 started today for the children of Mexico.
According to a survey, parents of the students in Mexico feel that the children's school supplies are expensive and also excessive for a basic education.
For 59.9 percent of parents, educational facilities are high-priced and 73.1 percent said that teachers ask too much, according to a telephone survey administered by the Office of Strategic Communications that was released yesterday.
In the interviews, it was stated that teachers ask too much because "there are things that children are not going to take" during the school year.
The same survey showed that the 77.3 percent of respondents said their children, acquaintances and relatives attended a public school, and although half said that the collection is a 'serious abuse', 70.9 percent confessed they pay dues. Almost 50 percent of parents interviewed stated that the payment is high.
Today, approximately 27.5 million students will go to the classrooms in preschool, primary and secondary, in the more than 234,000 public and private schools in the country.
