Teachers from rural areas of Guanajuato take risks and give face-to-face classes


Guanajuato.- “In some communities of the state capital, teachers have given face-to-face classes because not all the students who live in these areas have internet, computer, or even a TV”; revealed the director of Culture and Education, Jesús Antonio Borja Pérez.

He said that, given the pandemic and the conditions of inequality in rural communities, some teachers have decided to continue going to the villages where they teach, to review the progress of their students and leave homework so that their education is not interrupted.

“We find many communities in which it will be very difficult for children to receive a virtual class but we also have wonderful teachers who have taken risks and have gone to the communities to check on the children, see if they are doing their homework.”

Borja Perez said that one of those cases has been in the rural community of El Terrero where the teacher visits boys and girls at their own homes.

“And so there are many teachers who continue to be in contact with their children or who go to the communities, show up in their schools and continue working with their children, it is a problem not in Guanajuato, but in the entire country that is being solved little by little. Education cannot be stopped under any circumstances, with the problems that this implies in a country like ours in which it is necessary to look for alternatives”, said Jesús Antonio Borja Pérez.
