Keywords:
The purpose of this paper is to understand the economic, social and political factors
that enable some indigenous individuals to pursue post-secondary degrees, even
though most of them are shut out from the system. Using national and state data, we identify the prevalent conditions in Mexico in terms of post-secondary enrollments,
occupations and wages of indigenous and non-indigenous groups. We couple this
analysis with interviews and testimonials of 24 indigenous professionals who work
in the states of Chiapas and Oaxaca. The interviews allow us to idenfity systematic
factors that helped individuals from very marginal communities get to university.
This information is then used to outline educational policy recommendations that
would make possible that more indigenous students successfully complete postsecondary
education.
