Federal District Judge Orders Mexico Teacher Evaluations to Be Carried Out

go to original
June 8, 2015

The Sixth District Judge in Administrative Matters in the Federal District [Mexico City] ruled on Monday that teachers will have to take the teaching evaluation test at the time established by the responsible authority [National Institute of Educational Evaluation]. Judge Francisco Javier Rebolledo Peña provisionally overruled the decision of the Secretariat of Public Education (SEP), which announced that the test would be postponed indefinitely.

"The tests are to measure the quality of the teachers who teach in this society, based on what the Constitution says, so I considered the injunction ought to be given so that the admininstration of these tests is not paralyzed. They ought to be continued," Rebolledo said when asked by CNNMéxico.

The court decision came in response to the appeal filed by the civic organization Mexicans First, after the SEP announced the suspension of the teaching test at the end of May, in response to the demands of the National Coordinating Committee of Education Workers (CNTE).

The court document, released by the association in a statement, said that "the provisional injunction should be granted, to the effect that the responsible authority not suspend the evaluation process for hiring, promotion and retention in basic [elementary and middle school] education and in high school programmed for this year, that is, it comply with the provisions of the law and carry out the process of evaluation of teachers."

The injunction means that the timetable set by the National Institute for Educational Evaluation (INEE), for competition for teaching positions and current teachers' evaluations would be maintained. The evaluation tests for applicants for new teachers would take place in June and July, as part of educational reform enacted in 2013.
