Popular Educational Innovations in the Hierarchical World of Mexican Policy
Martin, Christopher
International Journal of Educational Development, v29 n2 p125-132 Mar 2009
In marginal regions of Mexico, grass roots educational innovations have often provided what the official system has not: basic education that responds to the cultural particularities of such populations while satisfying the national curriculum's requirements. The way these have developed, the article argues, offers valuable lessons for a new devolved, more democratic and sustainable form of educational provision in which the school is the heart of the educational system.
