Historical and Contemporary Policies of Indigenous Education in Mexico.
Cultural Survival Quarterly, v22 n1 p59-60 Spr 1998
Historically, Mexican education for indigenous children has reinforced linguistic ethnocide and assimilation in inefficient schools of low educational quality. Assimilationist policies generated interethnic, political, and economic conflicts. Recent constitutional changes resulted in minimal changes nationally, but a recent Oaxacan law protects and stimulates indigenous education, and some other states have examples of indigenous-designed models for education.
