Professional improvement is replaced by union merit
For the political teacher Humberto Aguilar, the secondary education reform laws passed by the Federal Chamber of Deputies condemn Mexico to mediocrity and “de facto grant public education to a mob of criminals.”
“The counter-reform dictated by the CNTE and the president Andrés Manuel López Obrador accepted, was to keep the impunity electoral negotiation in Chiapas Oaxaca, Guerrero and Michoacán because it only guarantees the educational lag, low quality in education and that the meritocracy for professional improvement is replaced for union merit in one of the most maa and corrupt unions, ”he said
Carlos Matienzo, a political scientist at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), said that although the Educational Reform was administrative as noted by the CNTE teachers, “therein lies its value: in taking away administrative control of education to groups such as coordinator; Close the key of one of the main sources of corruption. After regaining control, the quality continued to improve.
AMLO Sells out
Meanwhile, Isaac Katz, professor of economics at the Autonomous Technological Institute of Mexico (ITAM), said that with the new secondary laws “what matters least is the quality of education. They sacrificed the children and the nation will sue them. ”
“Empowering the CNTE will cause parents who can afford tuition to send their children to private schools. López Obrador is driving the privatization of education. ”
He added that with this new model, teachers will stand in front of a group of students without having the knowledge of what they have to teach and whose salary will not depend on the quality of the education they provide, but what the union leaders decide.
“They approved canceling a better future for Mexican children. Whose fault is it that children leave primary school without the ability to understand what they read, with barely knowledge of basic arithmetic operations, who do not know the least of history and geography? Yes, it is the fault of the teachers who do not know what they have to teach, ”he questioned.
