This review of E.Weiling's article addresses issues in the educational opportunities available to children in Oaxaca, Mexico. Weiling's study focuses on the question of why some families go to great lengths to continue their children's education, despite low financial means and economic status. Weiling reports the methods and results of interviews with eleven families in an effort to understand why children in these families received varying levels of education. Additionally, the study is put into context with a historical background on education in Mexico and Oaxaca in particular. Finally, the study also illustrates three theories that discuss how beneficial or possible additional education can be to families such as those discussed.
