The poor quality of Mexico´s primary and secondary education has often been attributed to the peculiar, corporativist relationship between the national teacher´s union, the Sindicato Nacional de Trabajadores de la Educación (SNTE), and the federal government. That relationship dates to the union´s founding in 1943, during the early years of Mexico´s authoritarian one-party regime (1939-2000). However, the practice by which party bosses trade votes and political favors in return for financial and other concessions, has survived long beyond the restoration of the multiparty system, stymying efforts to improve the quality of education.
