Curricular Reforms in Mexico: Challenges for Developing Disciplinary Literacy in Upper Secondary Education
López-Bonilla, Guadalupe
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v58 n7 p541-545 Apr 2015
In this article I present recent educational reforms implemented in Mexico and their implications for literacy instruction; in particular, I analyze changes to upper secondary education that seemingly want to promote the development of "disciplinary competences" among students enrolled in different educational tracks. The debates among the different stakeholders, the risks of poorly conceived policies, and the mediation role of participants involved in the enactment of such policies are finally discussed.
