ZURITA RIVERA, Úrsula. The Challenges of Educational Law in Mexico with regard to Social Participation and School Violence. RMIE [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.48, pp. 131-158. ISSN 1405-6666.
This article analyzes recent actions involving social participation and school violence in Mexico. Such matters are perceived as having relevance in terms of the right to education, which cannot ignore the right of all educational actors to participate and the importance of their psychological, physical, and social safety. An examination is made of certain elements that show that in order for actions to attain their objectives-whether strengthening social participation or preventing and reducing school violence-the ideas of governance must be addressed. Governance allows multiple actors from different levels to participate in providing a response to these complex problems.
