  "abstract": "<p><strong>Objective:</strong> This study aims to explore whether Mexico is ready to implement a 21st century framework at upper secondary school by undertaking an analysis on how the new upper secondary school curriculum in Mexico captures 21st-century skills as well as teacher&rsquo;s perceptions of success. <strong>Method:</strong> The design of the study complies a comparison analysis between the Mexican upper secondary school curriculum and a 21st-century skills framework. Additionally, qualitative data on teachers&rsquo; perceptions of success is collected through eight focus groups in 4 States of Mexico. <strong>Results:</strong> The findings show that the curriculum is short of 21st-century skills strategies. Moreover, although teachers welcome the 21st-century skills, they perceive lack of support and doubt about students&rsquo; capabilities to learn. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> Although Mexico has progressed in providing a 21st-century skill learning environment through the new curriculum, the educational system remains with the opportunity to revise the curriculum in order to offer a more suitable and adequate framework for the implementation of 21st-century skills.</p>",
