The Minister of National Education, Nicolas Trotta, visited the province today to participate in an official act to announce the delivery of netbooks to schools in the province. In this context, the head of the educational portfolio spoke about the impact of the defeat of the ruling party in the Simultaneous and Compulsory Open Primaries (PASO) in the government of Alberto Fernandez.
“We have been carrying out what the President has asked of us. Efforts and progress must be redoubled. Argentine society spoke out on Sunday and told us that the effort was not enough. We have to take note. In Tucumán, we had a very important result. It is the most populated province that had a favorable result for our Government. We have to mark the greatest possible presence of the national State, not only in Tucumán but in other provinces, also contextualizing an exceptional moment such as the pandemic, ”Trotta told the press.
“It has been a very difficult year and a half for all Argentines. We came from a reality of great complexity. Between 2015 and 2019 there were years of decline in social terms, in purchasing power, in salary and employment. But that is no excuse, we have to find answers to Argentina’s historical problems, but also to the challenges that the pandemic has imposed on us. We see that it has not been enough to fulfill our commitment, for example, to eliminate income tax for more than one million workers; reinstitutionalize the investment we are making in the Progresar plan: today we are accompanying a million young people with scholarships. The salary recovery framework has not been sufficient. We have to reinforce each of these points in the next 60 days ”, he added.
The minister aimed to “recover the expectations for the future, mainly, of those Argentines who elected us in 2019”.
