After Sánchez successfully pushed several educational reforms in New Mexico, the state refused to adopt his GEB-subsidized division. This left him without a job. He went through a period of short-term appointments for the rest of the decade with the Julius Rosenwald Fund to produce a book on revolutionary pedagogy in Mexico and to work on African American education in the U.S. South. He also worked in Venezuela as a consultant to its national government then overhauling its schools. However much he enjoyed these experiences, he pined for New Mexico. Sánchez spent the last years of the decade underemployed back in New Mexico as he produced his magnum opus, Forgotten People, which led to a full-time permanent position at the University of Texas in 1940.
