A Reassessment of Technical Education in Mexico.
Lopez-Acevedo, Gladys
Journal of Career and Technical Education, v19 n2 p59-81 Spr 2003
Propensity score matching was used to evaluate the effectiveness of Mexico's College of Professional Technical Education system with data from 5,574 graduates and a control group. Although controls found jobs faster, graduates have jobs more congruent with their training and earn 20-28% more. Cost-benefit analysis also supports program effectiveness. (Contains 32 references.)
