This is how the Undersecretary of Education, Nicholas Cataldo, presented at a meeting with the Metropolitan College of Teachers to discuss various issues in the sector.
They departed after meeting with the Under Secretary of Education, Nicolas Cataldo, the Metropolitan District Teachers College and representatives of the communities of Milibela, Tell Tell and Recoleta.
One of the points to be discussed was the extension of the validity of the school day flexibility, which, according to Colegio RM president, Mario Aguilar, will be extended “The Under Secretary told us that the school day flexibility will be extended, which seems to be in our favour, not only because of the health problem, but also Thinking about the students and their slow return to school life”
The DCU leader explained the other general points discussed, such as violence and school coexistence, the scholarship for a career as a teacher, which is very restrictive, and the retirement bonus.
The union leader emphasized that specific cases were also seen such as those of Tell Tell and Melibela, a municipality that records a drop in enrollment of so-called priority students “There is a very suspicious math equation left by the previous administration, which translates into serious damage to schools and a drop in teachers’ salaries.”
For their part, hill hill teachers suffer from a millionaire pension and health debts from the municipality, preventing many teachers from being retired and a lack of care in health centers.
Finally, the situation of the political prisoners of the revolution was analyzed, from the cases of students and those who suffer a violation of their right to education, “other than the bills asking for amnesty for them, at this time there are students under house arrest and they do not have the right to education, some even lost their scholarships that They had to be able to study it.”It seems completely unfair to us, because everyone has the right to an education,” said Mario Aguilar.
As for the president of the College of Professors and Professors, Mario Aguilar, we were generally well received, “and the Undersecretary promised to provide answers to the various issues raised, and we hope that they will be in the required speed, because there are serious and urgent issues.”
