For Mexicans First, the Federation Expenditure Project planned for next year will have an unequal distribution of the budget received by the federal entities in matters of public education.

In a conference, Fernando Ruiz, research director of the association, revealed that this is the result of an analysis of the Economic Package 2024, focusing mainly on spending on each compulsory basic education studentto identify if the federal budget of branch 33 is sufficient to meet the needs of each entity according to its student enrollment.

The government plans to carry out next year a federalized expenditure per student of 27,651 pesos on averagea budget that varies depending on the state, because some receive more resources.

Baja California Sur is where you will invest the most per student, with an amount of 46 thousand 94 pesoswhile Jalisco, the second state with the highest school enrollment, It will only have 18,132.

We defend the right to learn of all girls, boys and adolescents in Mexico and we urge them to work together to guarantee a fair and equitable distribution of resources allocated to education,” commented Patricia Vázquez del Mercado, executive president of Mexicanos Primero.

The analysis indicates that between 2018 and 2023, entities such as Guerrero, Colima and Oaxaca They have lost approximately 10 percent of their student enrollmentand they had increases in their budgets.

While Nuevo León and Quintana Roo received fewer resources despite having experienced an increase of 2.1 and 5.8 percent in number of students, respectively.
