In General Discussions
The discussion today The proposal to Country Email List return to face-to-face classes, with a calendar that, it is worth remembering, varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction —since the provinces are responsible for the schools—, as well as hygiene and Country Email List safety conditions that are obvious to list but that it is far from being able to guarantee universally, Although it is, together with Chile, Cuba and Uruguay, one of the countries in the Country Email List region that shows the highest rates of coverage at the secondary level, young people usually take longer than expected to finish their studies and discouraging indicators persist in relation to the repetition, overage and desertion. In relation to primary and secondary Country Email List education, as highlighted in a regional reportrecently published, the educational systems of the region had different temporalities. Argentina was characterized by a consistent development of primary schooling, being one of the countries in Latin America, along with Costa Rica, Chile and Country Email List Uruguay, that most vigorously promoted its universalization. For its part, secondary education, given its selective matrix, still maintains today —and despite the establishment of its Country Email List compulsory nature— difficulties in sustaining educational trajectories as well as in guaranteeing graduation. The conjunctural discussion cannot Country Email List be reduced to «I will return yes» or «I will not return». It is not a question, as Fito Paez's song said, of "returning or not returning", but of "under what conditions" to resume face-to-face. Opening schools is not opening the gate in the countryside and waiting for nature to provide. It is about Country Email List thinking about the conditions of that return, the resources, the proposed dynamics. It is about developing educational policy conditions within the framework of an agreement that mainly Country Email List involves governments and teachers' unions, but which should also aspire to provide conditions of trust and predictability for families.
