Around 300,000 children work illegally in the fields of Mexico, providing produce for dinner tables across the globe. The government recently brought in new labor laws to help crack down on child labor. But authorities are finding it hard to prosecute offenders, who are mostly poor farmers. Al Jazeera's Rachel Levin reports from Sinaloa, Mexico. (AlJazeeraEnglish)

A study by the Bank of México (Banxico) showed a high attrition rate among young people seeking an education. In fact, the study revealed that up to 70% of México’s students lack the economic resources needed for school and eventually drop out of school.

The primary source of financial aid is the family. The Banxico study showed that 75% of university level men and 80.4% of university women had relied on their family for financial assistance.

Data from the National Youth Survey 2010, conducted by the Ministry of Education, as well as studies by the Bank of México, and Seguros Monterrey New York Life, and the Kantar Worldpanel México, agree that “the economics and the high costs involved in pursuing a career has caused many young people to stop studying.”
