PEREZ CASTRO, Judith. Vicissitudes and Challenges of the Instituto Juárez de Tabasco. Secuencia [online]. 2015, n.91, pp.149-170. ISSN 2395-8464.

This paper analyzes the circumstances surrounding the founding and development of the Instituto Juárez de Tabasco. It seeks to show the complex situation in which the educational establishment was involved from its inception in 1879 to the early decades of the 20th century, and the impact this had on its educational provision and academic staff. The main variables framing its institutional development were the difficult financial situation, the closing and opening of its teaching departments, insufficient enrolment, the weak organization of its body of professors and unstable state politics. Despite these obstacles, the Instituto Juárez managed to remain open and establish itself as the state's main educational option at high school and professional level, which, together with a new process of reform, enabled it to rise as a university in the late 1950s.

Keywords : Scientific and literary institutes; higher education; History of education; regional development.
