One of the biggest "tragedies" in Baja California is that 4 out of 10 middle school students drop out of school to join the work force in Mexico, but most of them join the informal economy, as no business is authorized to hire minors under 15 years of age.

Alfredo Postlethwaite Duhagón, president of the Coalition for Social Participation in Education, reported that the greatest level of school drops in in middle school and this is both a social and economic problem.

In addition, he said 80% of the students at middle school levels have insufficient academic achievement.
