Today I visited El Tec de Monterey, a private school in Zacatecas. Here I found yet another power point projector as well as two auditoriums full of students psyched to get out of class for a traveling Gringo.
Mexico is, on average, a much poorer country than the United States, yet it is also a much more unequal one (see my fact comparison). While most people in Mexico earn the minimum wage of $5 per day, many others live at first world standards. Many of the students at these private schools live at first world standards, and I am excited to talk to them not only because many use resources similarly to those of us in the U.S., but also because they are in a position to make change in their country.
