    Mexico's higher education deserves 50% coverage: top academic
    English.news.cn 2010-04-09 09:58:40
    Mexico should aim to have 50 percent of its students going on to higher education by 2018, the director of Latin America's largest educational institution said on Wednesday.

    Mexico should have "a plan for a much wider coverage" of higher education, said Jose Narro Robles, director of the National Autonomous University of Mexico. He said the coverage could reach 30 percent by 2012.

    The Mexican government said in 2006 it wanted 30 percent of citizens at the relevant age enrolled in colleges by 2012.

    The current figure is about 26 percent, according to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
