The history of Mexico, a country located in the southern portion of North America, covers a period of more than two millennia.
First populated more than 13,000 years ago,[1] the country produced complex indigenous civilizations before being conquered by the Spanish in the 16th century.
Since the Spanish conquest, Mexico has fused its long-established native civilizations with European culture.
Perhaps nothing better represents this hybrid background than Mexico's languages: the country is both the most populous Spanish-speaking country in the world and home to the largest number of Native American language speakers on the continent.
From 1519, the Spaniards absorbed the native peoples into Spain's vast colonial empire.
For three centuries Mexico was just another kingdom (the New Spain) of the Spanish Empire, during which time its indigenous population fell by more than half and was partially replaced by Spaniards and the now predominant Mestizos or mixture of Indigenous and Spanish populations.
It was also then that the current Spanish-speaking, Catholic and Westernized Mexican culture was born.
After a protracted struggle Mexico declared its independence from Spain in 1810.
In 1846, the Mexican American War broke out, ending two years later with Mexico ceding almost half of its territory to the United States.
Later in the 19th century, France invaded Mexico (1861) and set Maximilian I on the Mexican throne, which lasted until 1867.

Education Gap

THE REALITIES OF EDUCATION IN LATIN AMERICA

Without a high-level education, Latin American children will continue to lack the skills necessary for entering the workforce and participating in the increasingly competitive global economy.

a.. 50 million people in Latin America cannot read or write.

b.. Latin Americans receive an average of six years of schooling, compared to nine-and-a-half years in the OECD (Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development) countries.

c.. Nearly one-third of children in primary school in Latin America repeat a grade. The additional cost to the region's education systems has been estimated at $4 billion per year.

d.. Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru rank behind Uganda, Zambia, Botswana and Burundi in the quality of their math and science education.

e.. In Mexico, only 13% of adults receive a high school diploma versus 87% of American adults.

f.. Over 50% of Mexican and Brazilian 15-year old youth are functionally illiterate and thus unable to compete in today's economy.

CONTRIBUTORS TO LATIN AMERICA'S EDUCATION CRISIS

1. HIGH DROP-OUT RATE THROUGHOUT LATIN AMERICA

The heart of the problem is the drop-out rate -- children living in poverty are not staying in school.

a.. 92% of Latin American children begin primary school, but only 32% continue on to secondary school (the U.S. equivalant of middle/high school). Even fewer ultimately graduate.

b.. Approximately 40 million children and adolescents in Latin America drop out of school to live or work on the streets each year.

c.. It is estimated that 95% of children have access to school in Brazil, but only 59% of them finish the eighth grade.

d.. It is well established that school dropouts have worse outcomes, including in terms of mental health status, than do those youth who stay in school.

2. INEQUALITY IN LATIN AMERICA

Unequal societies are less efficient at converting growth into poverty reduction. In Latin America, the education gap mirrors the income gap between rich and poor.

a.. Levels of inequality in Latin America are the highest in the world -- at least one in three households and two in five people live below the poverty line.
a.. 220 million Latin Americans (about 44% of the region's population)
live on less than $2 per day. Over half of them are children.
a.. In Brazil, children in the bottom income quartile complete an average of four years of school versus over ten years completed by children in the top income quartile.

3. LATIN AMERICA'S EDUCATION SPENDING

Despite increases in past years, spending on elementary education is still relatively low throughout the region.

a.. Per capita spending on primary education in Latin America still averages only 15% of U.S. levels.
a.. Latin American universities, which serve less than 10% of the population, receive a disproportionate share of education dollars compared to primary education.(In Brazil, public universities have only 2% of all pupils, but receive 25% of all federal education funds.

XXI CENTURY THINK TANK

1) Amnesty is a part more important of this immigration reform. It will be an excellent aplication to organize the law enforcements of a governamental institution ( USA ), then:

A) undocumented have many good people in their group and many want to do their register and background check, without fear to be jailed.

B) many undocumented will not do their register and background check, because something is wrong. And governamental institution will be there to check this out , and they will find out what is going on. Maybe criminals or a stupid who do not know how to write their names, and they will avoid the opportunity.

C) many american citizens have the same tools that undocumented have to find a job.

" FAKE DOCUMENTS " ( to get a job, do not pay tax and get benefits ), and they collect
benefits from a local gorvernament .

And their real " SOCIAL SECURITY" is just to collect unemployeds of benefits.

Finally AMNESTY MEANS LIKE JESUS SAID:

Matthew 13:24-30
New International Version (NIV)
The Parable of the Weeds

24 Jesus told them another parable:“The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.

27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said,‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’

28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.

“The servants asked him,‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’

29 “‘No,’ he answered,‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’"

thanks

VERY disappointed in Rubio's position on amnesty. Makes me sick. Why do all these politicians INSIST on doing things to benefit illegals? What is so hard about understanding they were elected to represent US, yes, US, U.S. citizens.
Because all the politicans have to do is do an amnesty and presto, bingo, the illegals are all citizens now too. That's the point. Both parties see that there are so many Mexicans here now because they have so many kids. Both parties have left the southern border open for decades to get cheap labor for the corporations. They do not care, not one bit, they never have and they never will. All they think about is getting votes, so if the Mexicans multiply like rabbits then they carry the vote, so now the Republicans want to do an amnesty too. They know that half of the Mexicans are dropping out of high school and that half of the young women are having kids out of wedlock now to get onto welfare and they do not care. All they think about is next week, next year, the next vote, them getting reelected. So now that the Hispanics carried the election, the Repubs want to do an amnesty too. At the same time, now the Dems talk about means testing social security and Medicare, cuts to Medicare, cuts to VA benefits, all cuts to old white people so that they can keep paying out the huge government pensions and keep paying out welfare to the Mexicans and the blacks. Anyone who thinks a nation of high school dropouts in gangs can stay standing, be anything, not collapse and that those people can somehow fund SS and Medicare for the baby boomers is dreaming. The Mexican invasion is the downfall of the U.S., and unchecked immigration was a large part of why the Roman Empire collapsed too. The Mexicans are dreaming they can get their kids on SS disability and get even more welfare and get SS and Medicare for their parents by them all getting an amnesty. Well, there is only so much money to go around, and the Dems are after the old folks now, so no, they will not be able to collect anything out of SS nor out of Medicare. By the time the younger ones want to collect, those programs will long since have been done away with. We are less than two years away from a total collapse of the U.S. starting with the bond market collapsing.
