La reforma educativa y las reformas a la administracion (Educational Reform and Reforms in Educational Administration).
El Maestro, Mexico, n2 p21-38 Aug 1969
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1500 words) summarizing a report presented to the Eighth National Plenary Assembly of the National Technical Council for Education by the Mexican Academy of Education, a private association of teachers. It recommended the adoption of four basic educational administrative reforms by the Mexican Ministry of Education: (1) decentralization of the administration of education and the creation of regional directing bodies; (2) transfer to the Directorates-General, all located in the capital, responsibility for all technical questions specific to the various types of education; (3) establishment of a staff level permanent agency for educational planning; and (4) action for the repeal of the Organic Law on Public Education. The permanent planning organism is conceived of as a data gathering, research, supervisory, and counselling unit serving the executive authority. The decentralization proposal should result in each State participating in planning its curriculum in accordance with its local needs, and the results on the Federal level would necessarily be more realistic, both educationally and financially.
