Report on Mexico Education Says Almost 15 Percent Drop Out of High School

Laura Poy Solano - La Jornada

March 25, 2013

Each year just over 605,000 young people ... drop out of high school. The National Institute for Educational Evaluation (INEE) indicates that the main reasons for high attrition at the high school level are:

  • Need to enter the labor market;
  • Lack of a relevant curriculum; and
  • "Lack of the knowledge and skills" that would allow them to continue their education.

According to INEE estimates, until 2010 at least 14.9 percent of those who were enrolled in upper secondary [high school] education dropped out; thus, a substantial part of the educational services offered at this level "are not capable of retaining an important segment of their students".

An INEE report on High School Education 2011 in Mexico, in the context of mandatory education - passed by Congress last year - points out that despite a reduction in the overall dropout rate, which fell from 19.8 percent in the 1996-1997 cycle, to 14.9 percent for 2009-2010, the number of young people who drop out of high school is still very high.
