New Education Secretary Nuno Vows That Education Reforms Will Advance
Education Secretary Nuño: Persona non grata in Oaxaca (e-consulta.com)
The new Secretary of Education has pledged that education reforms will be applied “forcefully” throughout Mexico, and through dialogue with teachers.
Aurelio Nuño, chief of staff to President Enrique Peña Nieto until this week’s cabinet shuffle, said the administration is determined that the reforms advance in all parts of the country.
In Oaxaca, however, the dissident CNTE teachers’ union not only rejected the new secretary’s appointment, but vowed he would not be allowed to set foot within Oaxaca territory.
Spokesman for union local Section 22, Mohamed Otaqui Toledo, described Nuño as someone who has had nothing to do with education, accusing him of promoting government policies that have contributed to poverty. The cabinet changes, he said, represent a recycling of functionaries and empowering people who have looted the country.
