Education in Relation to Social and Economic Change in Mexico.
Goldblatt, Phyllis K.
Numerous factors of the education process were analyzed statistically in relation to variables relating to social and economic change factors during the period 1930-1960 in Mexico. Major findings included the following: (1) from 1940 to 1960 general economic and social conditions became more favorable, but post-primary schooling of adults did not improve; (2) little indication was shown for differential growth indices between the several Mexican states; (3) the stability of relationships depended to a large extent on lack of an identification with the Federal state; and (4) the areas lagging behind national i"dices showed a larger change component over the twenty-year span. All educational variables were related to the amount of change on the social and economic indices by using multiple correlation statistical analysis. (JM)
