Covid-19, Pobreza y Educación en Chiapas: Análisis a los Programas Educativos Emergentes

Covid-19, Poverty and Chiapas’ Education: Analysis of Emerging’s Educational Programs
The evident change in the socio-educational life that brought about the pandemic by Covid-19 in Chiapas, Mexico, has exposed the pitfalls with which the national and state government institutions face with emergency the needs and demands of the school population. This paper highlights and confronts regional obstacles –in terms of poverty levels, access to goods and educational backwardness– that prevent the optimal implementation of the ‘Learn at Home’ and ‘My School at Home’ programs in the state. The research was carried out from the review and systematization of the statistical data provided by the INEGI and the SEP from 2015 to 2019, and the Geographic Information Systems were also used for the spatial representation of the most representative data. One of the most important findings shows that high levels of poverty and educational backwardness are the common denominator in three regions of Chiapas (Altos Tsotsil-Tseltal, De los Llanos and Tulijá Tseltal-Chol) which, in turn, have less access to goods necessary for school work at home under pandemic multimodal education. It is concluded that these emerging educational programs were not designed for the various social realities in which the country is constituted; for this reason, the threat is latent in terms of increasing educational gaps between the regions of Chiapas, as well as between the states of Mexico.
