The Mexican Senate passed the education reform bill today and Mexican teachers are not happy.
One senator, Mario Delgado, supports the protests, arguing that “when Congress is rendered void, the only thing that remains is the streets.” I’m not sure why Congress is void just because it passes a reform bill that you don’t like, but whatever Mario. I’m guessing logic isn’t your strong suit.
The bill itself is riddled with concessions that threaten to dilute the strength of the reform, but I’ll write more on that later. For now I’ll leave you with this great image of the striking teachers denouncing “the kidnapping of Mexico.” Wow.
