We have received notice from our colleagues in the field of the History of Education in Mexico that the Archivo Histórico de la Secretaría de Educación Pública (AHSEP) of Mexico will again be moved (as it was in 2007) without taking the necessary precautions for the preservation and professional management of this extremely valuable collection of documents.
As scholars and historians interested in the History of Mexico, we are aware of the value of the Ministry of Education’s archive through the excellent research on Mexico´s cultural and political life that has used sources contained in the AHSEP. We therefore share the concern expressed by many historians and educators in Mexico and support their petition to suspend any further action until optimal conditions and arrangements for storage can be guaranteed.
