Crespo, Jorge Ivan Puma. “De la tolerancia al rechazo total: la disidencia magisterial en Oaxaca y la aplicación de pruebas estándarizadas, 2008-2013.” NORRAG Número Especial: Monitoreo global del desarrollo educativo nacional: ¿coercitivo o constructivo?(03) (2019) 92-94.


Jorge Puma offers a quick overview of the reasons behind the resistance of a local teacher's union in southern Mexico against standardized tests. He shows that the teacher's political capital and state weakness combined to stop reform proposal espoused by Mexico's federal government in 2013. Oaxaca's remains a cautionary tale to any overconfident reformer.
