Mexican teachers strike against reforms

Teachers camped out outside Congress claim they are used as scapegoats for the real problems in education.

    Thousands of teachers in Mexico are striking against sweeping educational reforms.

    They have already convinced members of the Lower House of Congress to leave out the most controversial measure of an education reform package - teacher evaluations.

    President Enrique Pena Nieto says he wants to improve Mexico's poorly performing schools.

    But teachers insist they are being used as scapegoats for the real problem, inadequate budgets and endemic corruption.
