A Look at the Quality of Primary Education in Baja California, Mexico: School Marginalization and Equity in its Results

The fundamental problem addressed by this research is equity in primary education in Mexico, particularly in the state of Baja California, in the northwestern part of the country. This research uses the results provided by the National Plan for the Evaluation of Learning (PLANEA), to know the level of equity fomented by the education of the state. Through the analysis of the differences in learning between groups of students of the last grade of primary education that attend schools with different levels of marginalization; the research concludes that the schools of Baja California that are located high marginalization zones, do not function as an agent for the reduction of social gaps that are related to the learning of basic elements of language and communication. This highlights the need for attention to social inequality, in order to foster a life with decent possibilities for development.
