    Mexico's new president, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, or AMLO, is undoing the controversial education reforms launched by his predecessor that sparked violent protests by teachers.

    AMLO has proposed a new plan that would scrap teacher evaluations and make public education free. But many say the government can't afford to do that.
