Recounts the author's 20-year research project to document the evolution of the Mexican school system through the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s and discusses the proposed changes for the first six years of the current decade. Mexico's leaders see the education of all children as the goal. Progress toward this goal is overseen by the all-powerful Secretaria de Educacion Publica, which provides all public education and monitors private education in the country. How is this bureaucracy organized and what type of services does it provide to the people of Mexico? Miller begins the exploration to answer this question; takes up basic literacy, moving to special literacy; special education; teacher education; Spanish literacy for Mexicans in the United States. And finally, Miller considers some of the likely future trends in Mexican education. This comprehensive treatment will be important reading for anyone interested in understanding an often overlooked aspect of North American education.
