Regarding Teachers of Polotitlán. The marker describes a situation that is still relatively common in some areas of Mexico and other countries in Latin America, where teachers travel to a community and live there during the week. They then return to their homes on the weekends or every two weeks, depending on the difficulty of travel. With better transportation and communication this type of arrangement is mostly limited to more rural areas now.
