This volume presents a critical analysis of the conflicts and contradictions inherent in educational policy planning in Mexico since the early 1970s. Morales-Gomez and Torres examine the complex relationships among the politics of a corporative State built upon the remains of a revolutionary tradition, the current model of associated-dependent development, and the process of policy formation in formal and nonformal education. Analysis of specific cases enables the authors to present an overview of the factors intervening in the design, planning, and implementation of educational policies in Mexico as well as to assessing the effects of educational change on the poorest sectors of its society.
