Education And Development In Mexico: Middle And Higher Education Policies In The 1990s, Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez, Lorenza Villa-Lever

Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

This chapter is comprised of four sections. The first considers the characteristics of “knowledge society” and the educational changes that developing countries must undertake if they are ever to close the gap with the industrialized world. The next section assesses secondary edu-cation in Mexico, and the third examines the higher educational system. The final part offers a series of reflections on the tendencies that we are now witnessing, outlining the changes that are required to achieve better articulation between middle and higher education policy and Mexico’s options for growth and development in the near future.
