The lithograph The Rural Schoolteacher, of 1932, is another of the images Diego Rivera took from his mural work. In the foreground of the scene we see a group of men, women, children, and old people under the guidance of a schoolteacher, who is indigenous like them. Having no other place to perform her teaching tasks, she has assembled her group in the countryside, where several men can be seen working the earth. There is also a horseman with a rifle in his hand, reminding us that the Revolution is still present and that “education for all” is yet another of its achievements.
