Neoliberals from international banks are meeting stiff opposition in Mexico in their efforts to transform public education into commodities that can be bought and sold in capitalist markets. They have no qualms about murdering people to obtain their objectives.
The reasons why the Mexican government wants to impose the Educational Reform, even if it means killing people, as with the massacre in Nochixtlán by repressive state forces on June 19, are rooted in economic objectives guided by international financial organizations. The reform, proposed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), with the OECD-Mexico Agreement to Improve the Quality of Education in Schools of Mexico, aims to lay the groundwork to shift education from being a State responsibility to instead being resolved in the realm of the financial market.Lois Weiner of New Politics introduces another report with this statement:
Another piece explains the complicity of the "official" pro-government teachers union, SNTE, in supporting the government reforms, against the will of thousands who have taken to the streets. The protests are being led by a reform movement, CNTE, within the official union. An activist in the Chicago Teachers Union who has done work with CNTE has organized a fund-raising appeal. Money will to directly to CNTE, which is fighting with unbelievable courage against reforms that are planned for the rest of the world. Yes, the US as well.
