Education in municipal agendas within the state of Tlaxcala, Mexico




Education, government agenda, planning, municipality


In Mexico the educational policies correspond to a decentralized model, but are designed in the federal government and implemented in coordination with the state governments; however, municipal governments are only taken into account in complementary and tangential activities. For this reason the objective of this research was to analyze the issue of public education in the agendas of municipal governments within the state of Tlaxcala, according to the responsibilities derived from the process of national decentralization. This study provides a documentary analysis of the Municipal Development Plans, which assert that municipalities may integrate educational issues in their working agendas in multiple ways. The results identified objectives, strategies and actions in the municipalities that are imprecise and have little relation to state and municipal regulations.
