Dissident teachers in state capital, Chilpancingo, Guerrero (Daniel Cruz)
CHIPANCINGO, Guerrero - The head of the Secretariat of Education of Guerrero [SEG], Silvia Romero Suárez, announced that on Monday, April 22, they will begin the process to replace the teachers involved in the dissident teachers work stoppage.
Romero Suárez said that given the risk that thousands of children will lose the school year, they have considered the possibility of hiring outside teachers who will have the task of tending to the schools that have been closed by the movement led by the State Coordinating Committee of Education Workers in Guerrero.
Romero Suárez acknowledged that, so far, there are no precise figures on the number of schools involved in the work stoppage, but estimated that between 1,200 and 1,500 schools are without classes.
