AVILA MELENDEZ, Luis Arturo; HERNANDEZ RUIZ, Amayrany Karina; ECHEVERRIA GONZALEZ, María del Rocío  and  ZAMBRANO ROMERO, Alfonso. Accompanying basic education instructors for child migrant day-workers and instructor development. Innov. educ. (Méx. DF) [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.71, pp.111-132. ISSN 1665-2673.

The collaboration between researchers and instructors to develop a basic education program that attends to a highly vulnerable population enabled the pinpointing of the role of formally assigned accompaniment to pedagogical advisers within the Mexican education system. We adapted a modality of participative action research to the conditions of the basic education program; we recorded class sessions and analyzed, along with the instructors, specific moments to stimulate reflection about the achievement of an innovation goal. The collaboration was organized in such a way that some typical tensions of this type of action research were effectively resolved, and the results clearly demonstrated that this kind of research can lead to greater benefits for instructor development and the functions of pedagogical advisers. The research identifies the resources and mechanisms that the Mexican education system needs to modify in order to achieve instructor accompaniment and development that deliver long-lasting results through the personnel dedicated to this task.
