MX Education system revamp

Frontera
Excerpts: MEXICO CITY (AP) — Riot police swept thousands of striking teachers out of the heart of Mexico City on Friday, driving protesters through the streets with tear gas and water cannons in a swift end to the weeks-long occupation of the Zocalo plaza over reforms to the dysfunctional national education system.

Pena Nieto's new standardized system of test-based hiring and promotion would give the government the tools to break teachers unions' near-total control of school staffing. That control includes the corrupt sale and inheritance of teaching jobs, and it has been widely blamed for much of the poor performance of Mexican schools, which have higher relative costs and worse results than any other in the 34-nation Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

I can see it now:

A misbehaving child is about to be punished in school and he tells the teacher:  Do I have to call out the fire hoses again?
Peace through Superior Firepower
