Library

We believe that it is important to maintain a clear, varied, and comprehensive record of media and consulting reports as well as general research undertaken into the area of education in the public, private and informal sectors in Mexico. This library, it is believed, is an important element in understanding the key challenges, demands, and areas of focus of education in Mexico. Whilst we strive to update the library on a regular basis we understand that it does not constitute every report ever written. If you would like to make recommendations to the library please write to info@jacarandaeducation.org subject line “library”. The library is currently catalogued by date with the most recent appearing first. The organization keeps a hardcopy of all reports listed in its central offices. Should a link break and you would like to receive a copy of a report listed please write to the email address listed above with your request. This portion of the library is in English.
