The 100-year anniversary of Mexican constitution, 1917–2017, implies critical research and analysis of social rights in contemporary Mexico. This constitution established a system of social rights protection, unique in the world. As far as education was concerned, it established free, laic, and public principles of educational access. In terms of employment and workers’ rights, it established system of protection, which created fundaments of welfare policies until 80s. Then began the implementation of neoliberal ideas due to paradigm change following the Washington Consensus supported by the World Bank and International Monetary Funds.
