La opinión pública aprovechó la coyuntura para discutir una vez más sobre el significado de su figura en la historia de México, pero en el mundo educativo nada se modificó sustancialmente, pues los tiempo educativos son de larga duración. El significado histórico de Porfirio Díaz en los programas de estudio y los libros de texto se ha sedimentado: enseñar como legítima la desigualdad económica que lacera a México.[1]
