Mexico Gains World Bank Aid for Education Reforms

The World Bank has endorsed a USD700 million loan to help Mexico establish policies to strengthen its Upper Secondary Education Reform Program. The program aims to amend the nation’s upper secondary education system to underscore new general, disciplinary and professional abilities. It also seeks to train at least 120,000 teachers, as well as create and operate a school evaluation system for admission into the National Upper Secondary System. The Mexican secretary of public education will implement the project.
