The purpose of this thesis is to give some account of the career of Dr. Sáenz and to present the essential features of his philosophy regarding education and the incorporation of the Indian into the modern state. As background for his services to Mexican education, Chapter I reviews educational trends in Mexico from colonial times to the decade of the 1920's. Chapter II describes Sáenz' professional training and experience prior to 1925. Chapters III and IV deal with his services as Undersecretary to Public Education, 1925-1930, with emphasis upon his ideas concerning secondary education in Mexico and Rural education for the Indian Masses. His later career from 1930 until his death in 1941, and his major publications during this period, are discussed in Chapter V. The final chapter consists of a summary and conclusions.
