Supreme Court Makes Further Rulings That Validate Mexico's Education Reforms
Standardized Evaluations Not About Quality Education, Say Dissident Teachers (teleSUR English)
The court announced last week that the removal of pro tem teachers who fail evaluations they must take in order to occupy full-time positions is not in violation of the constitution.
Justices also endorsed unanimously the stipulation that full-time teachers who fail their performance exams must be removed from their positions and relocated, while teachers who obtain unfavorable results will have the option, within 10 days after the test date, to appeal the evaluation through an administrative adjudication or with an amparo, or injunction.
The Court also reiterated that teachers who refuse to be evaluated should be terminated immediately, as any other action would be unconstitutional.
During their deliberations, judges took into consideration articles of the Mexican constitution which guarantee the right of students to a quality education.
