Mexico: The Country That Stopped Reading | NYTimes.com

Mexico: The Country That Stopped Reading | NYTimes.com | North America & Europe | Scoop.it

Earlier this week, I spotted, among the job listings in the newspaper Reforma, an ad from a restaurant in Mexico City looking to hire dishwashers. The requirement: a secondary school diploma.

 

Years ago, school was not for everyone. Classrooms were places for discipline, study. Teachers were respected figures. Parents actually gave them permission to punish their children by slapping them or tugging their ears. But at least in those days, schools aimed to offer a more dignified life.

 

Nowadays more children attend school than ever before, but they learn much less. They learn almost nothing. The proportion of the Mexican population that is literate is going up, but in absolute numbers, there are more illiterate people in Mexico now than there were 12 years ago. Even if baseline literacy, the ability to read a street sign or news bulletin, is rising, the practice of reading an actual book is not. Once a reasonably well-educated country, Mexico took the penultimate spot, out of 108 countries, in a Unesco assessment of reading habits a few years ago.

 

One cannot help but ask the Mexican educational system, “How is it possible that I hand over a child for six hours every day, five days a week, and you give me back someone who is basically illiterate?”

Julia & Eva's curator insight, November 29, 2013 6:36 PM

This is for  intellect. 

In Mexico not many people know how to read. Barely any at all. The schools are focusing more on what type of book the read rather than if they can read at all.  There are more people that are illiterate than there were 12 years ago. If Mexico keeps going at this rate than there will be barely any people who can read at all in the county.

This falls under Social:

European government is loosing contact within each EU country. The boarders don't have a lot of contact anymore, and the government similarities is slipping. Therefore, the economy is falling because they aren't working together.

European Borders Through History | National Geographic Education

European Borders Through History | National Geographic Education | North America & Europe | Scoop.it

Students compare maps of European borders at three points in history: after World War I, after World War II, and the 2011 European Union (EU) countries.


Students look for political borders that have changed and others that have remained the same, and compare those to what they know about cultural and physical geography in Europe and in their own state or local area.

[EUROPE] Geography/Area: This is Geo/Area because it shows a link which leads to show the changing of the European map. European Reach has changed drastically over the years. The area has changed, and im pretty sure small parts of the geography have changed.

Sino and Makena's curator insight, February 12, 2015 11:22 PM

In America, students learn about the growth of America and the change in areas and borders throught its history. Only 200 years of history that is. Europe has thousands of years of history, making the observation in changes of borders in Europe quite a heafty topic of research!

michael bannikoff's curator insight, May 28, 2015 8:03 AM

Gives students information on how Europe has been shaped through history. Students are able to see how wars, annexation and other historical events have shaped modern Europe.

Kaleigh & Lauren:)'s insight:

This falls under the catagory of Religion.  I think they should ban them, and personaly I think the US should too because they are harrasing and bullying others of opposite beliefs. The U.S can't ban the group, because we are a free country so they are allowed to speak their mind.  But I don't blame other country's for not wanting them.
