North American free trade agreement and education as a component of sustainable development
When the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is spoken of, the primary issues that come to mind are economics and the environment. Throughout this study I will provide evidence that NAFTA has an effect on education. I will concentrate on higher education, emphasizing opportunity, preparation, and the quality of education for Mexican citizens. I will discuss the role of NAFTA and the role of Mexico within this trade agreement. I will further discuss the concept of development and how NAFTA has, and will, influence the system of higher education and the quality of employment in Mexico. My goal is not only to illustrate a relationship between development, with the North American Free Trade Agreement and its influence on education, but I also would like to provide a basis for my assumption that education is an important factor even in a primarily economic treaty. In a global community where financial growth is central, human development and especially education cannot be overlooked.
