Abstract:

The issues of poverty, education, and emigration are intertwined in Mexico. Each issue directly affects the others, with poverty being the main shared component. Further analysis indicates that these issues also seriously affect the United States, with illegal immigration at the forefront. This paper investigates these issues and discusses how they affect each other, and how they affect the economic development of rural, southern Mexico. In addition, the paper discusses recent changes in Mexicos education system, and how these changes have affected poverty and illegal immigration to the United States. Finally, the paper recommends changes in the education of immigrant children, and in the education of teachers who teach immigrant students, both in the United States and Mexico.
