EDUCATIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE IN MEXICO, 2000-2015
AbstractThe Human Capital theory assumes that a greater investment in education is positively correlated to a greater future income, being a key factor for economic and social development. These assumptions are contrasted with educational policies in Mexico in the period 2000-2015 in high school and higher education through: spending, enrollment, teachers, educable population and infrastructure variables. These variables are used to explain the contradictions between the natural growth of the population with subsequent educational demand and inadequate public response, compounded by the economic crisis affecting the most vulnerable social sectors. In addition to a growing increase of young people between 15 and 29 years of age who are not involved in academic or work activities.
