Education to eradicate the influence of narco-culture in the children of Mexico

Fausto Medina Esparza, Autonomy University of Baja California (Mexico)


In Mexico, the violence of various groups of drug traffickers has continued. But, since 2019, it has been about resolving violence through understanding and attention to the causes that originate socioeconomic inequalities (National Development Plan, 2019). However, the influence of the narco-culture is evident. Given the promotion of this culture, the question is about educational actions to mitigate the influence of narco-culture on children in Mexico. Thus, a documentary investigation was developed to substantiate the negative influence of narco-culture on children and to identify what is being done in the Secretary of Public Education to avoid such influence. The promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence was identified by: (1) using educational strategies, (2) incorporating material for teacher training, (3) providing psychological, social and educational guidance support, (4) providing, free of charge, advice, and guidance to children, adolescents and young people, (5) manage information on types of violence to the National Commission for the Continuous Improvement of Education, (6) generate agreements between the public, private and social sectors, (7) inform the authorities about those behaviors that warrant sanctions for acts of violence, (8) disseminate through electronic and digital means information that allows raising awareness, (9) provide educational materials and disseminate them. There is also a program and a reference framework to manage school coexistence that promotes a culture for peace. However, in the Basic Education Curriculum (2022) only one section was found where the culture of peace is mentioned as part of the right to education. In addition, the presence of school violence (physical, psychological, sexual or cybernetic) in basic education and high school maintains its presence to the degree that it is necessary to monitor in urban schools, the behaviors of men who do not respect gender diversity, and physically and economically disadvantaged people. In addition, it is required that schools promote respect for discipline, parental participation and the use of the curriculum and administrative regulations to foster a culture of peace (National Commission for the Continuous Improvement of Education, 2021).
