Resumen

RUIZ LARRAGUIVEL, Estela. Technical High Schools in Mexico: The Bridge between an Academic Education and Vocational Training. RMIE [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.84, pp.61-89.  Epub 19-Jun-2020. ISSN 1405-6666.

This article examines the results obtained from a documentary study related to the tensions and dilemmas of general education versus vocational training as experienced in the high schools in Mexico's federal subsystem of Technical High Schools for Industry and Services. The analysis focuses on the place the two types of training occupy in the curriculum, assessment processes, institutional dynamics, and student demand. The results indicate that students and the general school community have little interest in technical education, in contrast with the enthusiasm shown for college preparatory studies. This predisposition is assumed to show the high degree of academic drift at technical high schools.

Palabras llave : technical high schools; job training; academic education; educational change; Mexico.
