A history of education in Oaxaca, is a unique, one-of-a-kind project, set in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. At the centre of the project is an analysis of educational themes, viewed from a historical perspective, and which have been deeply interlinked with political complexity, having a direct impact on the way society functions.
The Project entails three initiatives; a radio series entitled, The way to school: A history of education in Oaxaca, which will be broadcasted in September, on the radio station CORTV Oaxaca. The colloquium History of Education in Oaxaca: between sources and pedagogical experiences, from the Colonial period to the post revolution period, this will take place during the 37th International Book Fair of Oaxaca (FILO) The final initiative of this project will be an editorial collection entitled Basic Library of the history of education in Oaxaca, to be edited in 2018 under Almadía Publishing House and Proveedora Escolar.
In order to enrich, structure and orient these projects, Fondo Ventura has created an Advisory Council, formed by renowned experts, in the fields of Oaxacan Research History and Oaxacan Pedagogy.
Through this Project, we aim to promote spaces that are both free and open, allowing the inhabitants of Oaxaca and the public in general to have a better panorama of the complexity surrounding educational themes. At the same time, the project seeks to enhance dialogue and reflection, as a response against misinformation and confusion. We believe that serious reflection and a deeper analysis of educational ideas will contribute profoundly to Oaxacan society and improve our interpretation of education.
