The basic problems of rural education in the world and particularly in Mexico are coverage, poverty, lack of teachers and a curriculum that privileges the urban sector. The cold figures show the magnitude of the rural world that for many members. The society is invisible and yes, it is so, that world in general where in their education it usually seems a topic that does not even classify as "forget it".
Being born and growing up in a rural condition zone is often synonymous with lacking the benefit of a pertine education. Today, even though today the actions directed to the sector increase.
In Mexico, the rural population amounts to a little more than 25 percent of the country's total; of this, 50.4 per One hundred are women and for those over 15 years
s the average schooling is only 4.6 years, lower by 0.4 points to the same indicator for men, but well below the average of schooling of the nation, which is certainly among the lowest in the world. The data shows at least 50.4 percent of the Mexican population lives in a situation of poverty and this percentage 41.1 percent suffers extreme poverty. It actually reflects that the problem of food is a national issue, that is, impoverishment of the countryside affects all social strata and it expands through the social fabric. There is therefore a fundamental problem linked to the exercise of power, equity and democracy.
