Satisfied, they left after meeting with the Under Secretary of Education, Nicolas Cataldo, the DC District Teachers’ College and representatives of the Millibilla, Tell Tell and Recoleta communities.
Among the points discussed was the extension of the validity of the school day’s flexibility. Which, according to the head of the RM School, Mario Aguilar, will be extended “The Under Secretary told us that the flexibility of the school day will be extended, which seems favorable to us, not only because of the health problem, but also the thinking from the students and its leisurely 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.
Aguilar reported that specific cases were also seen, such as those of Til Til and Melipilla, The municipality that records a decrease in the 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 decrease in teachers’ salaries.”
Meanwhile, Tel Aviv teachers suffer from a millionaire pension and health debts from the municipality, preventing many teachers from being retired and a lack of care at health centers.
Finally, the situation of political prisoners in the revolution was analyzed, from the cases of students and those who suffer from the violation of their right to education.Besides bills calling for their pardon, there are currently students under house arrest who do not have the right to their education and some have even lost scholarships they should have been able to study. “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.”
