Mexican teacher strike about education reform

A Mexican student Carolina commented on the teacher strike and blocades on July 4, 2016.
Our incredible president (ha!) aims to privatize education (and petrol and many other things), which has caused chaos. Because of this, many teachers and educators have gone on strike (some of them have inherited their positions without even studying) because they do not agree with the reform. The reform is awful, but it has got a fair point: Only those who are prepared to be teachers will be able to do so. I know it will mean a lot of people would lose their jobs, but it might better education. At the same time, this reform “deletes” humanities from the courses list. It’s a complete mess and scary. Right now, Oaxaca is closed off. Nobody knows who’re the “good” guys and who aren’t.
