The project offers decision makers and school communities a model that provides different recommendations on how and when to open schools, balancing the monitoring of the epidemiological situation with the levels of academic learning and infrastructure conditions of schools. And also, considering the demographic conditions of families and households which marginalize students from optimal access to and use of remote education. With this, Mexicanos Primero at the national level and Mexicanos Primero in the state of Sinaloa have sought to contribute to the restitution of the educational rights of children by balancing the right to health with the right to education.
