Officials to Survey Schools in Preparation of Pena Nieto's Education Reform

December 17, 2012

MEXICO CITY – Education Secretary Emilio Chuayffet Chemor and the president of the National Statistics and Geography Institute (Inegi), Eduardo Sojo Garza-Aldape, agreed Sunday to begin designing a census of the nation’s teachers and students as part of President Enrique Peña Nieto’s plan to reform Mexico’s education system.

The heads of the two agencies said they will put together a working group to decide how schools, teachers and students would be evaluated and scheduled a meeting for the third week of January in Aguascalientes, where the Inegi is headquartered.

In related news, Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) Deputy Coordinator Silvano Aureoles Conejo said that the education reform must change the way the government funds schools.

“It won’t mean anything if we approve education reform without increased funding for public universities or if the money for science and technology is cut.” He called the reform an important step for the federal government in regaining control over education, which he said has been lost to the National Teachers Union (SNTE).

No one should oppose the improvement of Mexico’s educational system, he said, adding that Mexico’s three major political parties agreed on the reform. He added that a quality education system is especially important during periods of violence to serve as an alternative for young people who might be tempted to get involved in criminal activities.
