The objective of this study was to identify factors that predict resilience and social mobility in persons living in extreme poverty in Mexico by analyzing an extensive set of school-related variables. A total of 913 adults were surveyed, with 65.2% women and an average age of 43.71 years. Significant correlations were found between the seven educational variables measured and resilience, and only one of them was correlated with social mobility. Regression analysis identifies achievement motivation and a reflexive learning style as predictors of resilience. The results are discussed in terms of their implications for this segment of the population.
