Building the Puebla education model

The government of Puebla is committed to undertaking a profound transformation of its education system, just as many top-performers and successful reformers in education have already done, which will result in the Puebla Education Model. Significant improvements in enrolment, performance and completion have been achieved in recent years, but many students struggle to make progress and education opportunities and outcomes remain strongly linked to the socio-economic background of students. States are mainly responsible for the operation of schools within a complex governance system in which the federal government continues to play a prominent role in designing and funding education policies and SNTE has a strong influence on personnel decisions. The learning environment of schools is very challenging and often teachers and school leaders do not receive adequate preparation, support and compensation. Setting in motion reforms in key areas, drafting a long-term strategy and strengthening the capacity for improvement are the keystones to the Puebla Education Model.
