Mexico Needs to Proactively Educate Maquiladora Workers

Allan M. Beck

Abstract


Mexico is not known for an outstanding public education system. Rankings are less than needed to advance the manufacturing sector and move into a more competitive high-tech model to support the needs of North America and fight off the constant threat of outsourcing.  In the study described herein a clear deficiency in educating the workforce was a lack of bringing education to the industrial parks and the workforce that requires upgrading to compete on a global stage. Competitiveness and innovation are dominant themes of successful workforce improvement efforts. The government and educational institutions need to understand the limitations and restrictions of potential students and offer classes close to the workplace and, specifically, in the maquiladora industrial parks.
