Rural Education in México

Dr. Bolanos

Educational equity for Indigenous populations is one of the major challenges facing México and other Latin American nations. Constructing rural schools in the twentieth centrury helped reduce the gap between rural and urban areas, yet retention rates or rural students remain low. The research of Dr. Diego Juárez Bolaños elucidated why fewer rural children complete basic education. His extensive experience with multi-age/multi-level pedagogies that foster the empowerment of diverse Indigenous communities has resulted in positive changes. Instrumental to reconciliation in Canada is learning learning from the experiences of other nations that have engaged constructively with their Indigenous and rural communities.
