Schooling for Success: Preventing Repetition and Dropout in Latin American Primary Schools

By Laura Randall; Joan B. Anderson | Go to book overview

the increase represents an additional one-half of their salary ( Blanco Lerín et al. 1996, 23). The importance of the "teaching career" in teachers' overall compensation package is becoming increasingly important since wages have not kept pace with inflation since 1994. In spite of these economic incentives, only onethird of teachers presently working in Mexico City have registered themselves in a "teaching career." Among those, mostly all are in level A (Ibarrola et al. 1997). The available information does not allow us to conclude that the lack of participation in the "teaching career" is connected to the fact that half of the teachers in the system are already receiving double jobs.

Teacher training is the most important element of school success. Mexico recently initiated a reform to improve the training of its future teachers. The process of educational modernization in the different states will undoubtedly influence the future success of schools across the country.
