In the On Assignment feature about Mexican education in the March 20, 2002, issue of Education Week ("Educating Mexico,") a map showing the average educational level attained in each Mexican state included incorrect color coding for two states. The state of Michoacán should have been shown in white, meaning its residents had gone to school until the 6th or 7th grade. Chiapas should have been shown in tan, meaning people living there did not, on average, exceed the 6th grade.
