This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of six studies of the different levels of education and the humanistic content of the teaching program at each level. On the preschool level, it is stated that kindergarten education in Mexico attempts to put the small child in contact with the world that surrounds him. Elementary education includes health and physical training, use of natural resources in the environment, comprehension and improvement of social life, creative activities, practical activities, and acquisition of the elements of culture. Elementary schools should place a high value on the formative aspects of human personality. The efforts of secondary schools to supply a humanistic education is analyzed, beginning with a consideration of student needs and characteristics. The upper level of secondary education is studied in terms of student characteristics who enter preparatory schools, generally at sixteen to follow a three year course for the baccalaureate which gives entry to the National Autonomous University of Mexico. The education of teachers carried out by normal schools in Mexico aims at endowing them with broad cultural preparation. Higher normal schools train secondary school teacher in the integral development of youth. (Author/GDB)
