From next February to June, the Secretariat of Public Education will hold 21 national and regional forums to review the current educational model. In these forums, secretary Emilio Chuayffet Chemor assured that “no one will be excluded. No one will be impeded from speaking.” In these forums, he affirmed, educators from the National Coordinating Committee of Education Workers will be participating.
In a press conference revealing the rules of the call for proposals for the National Consultative Forums for the Revision of the Education Model, in which educators, parents, students, researchers, civil society organizations, legislators, and “anyone interested in making proposals” may participate, he noted that its decisions will be binding; the financial resources to bring them to fruition will be sought after, as both “medium and long term” actions will be taken.
The federal official revealed that there will be 18 forums throughout the states, since the country was divided into six regions, and in each one of them there will be at least three meetings scheduled from February 7 to May 23, with an equal number on a national scale, for the purpose of presenting the conclusions of the three central themes: elementary and middle school education, high school education, and the college training of teachers.
