The general secretary of UTE-CTERA, Angelica Gracianocriticized the reform of the Teachers’ Statute of the City of Buenos Aires approved in the City Legislature and denounced that the head of the Buenos Aires government, Horacio Rodriguez Larretaand the Minister of Education, Soledad AcunaThey want to subject teachers to a process of job insecurity and exploitation.
With 32 votes in favor of the official interbloc Together for Change, and 27 against legislators from the Front of All and the Left, the Legislature of the City of Buenos Aires approved this Thursday the reform of the Teaching Statute that cuts and segments the number of titles of positions of teachers and teachers.
“The Buenos Aires government again ignored the teachers and the educational community”said Graciano in communication with AM750. “The wage incentives proposed by the city are neoliberal policies,” added a union member who questioned the methodology and conception of the educational reform.
Graciano said that what the educational community needs is that the teaching career has predictability and public control, that the State guarantees the training of education professionals and that there is no discrimination in access to positions. “The government denies that possibility and sent a project to the legislature without a single comma being discussed”he expressed.
Lastly, the UTE referent said that “in order to improve education” instead of discussing teaching incentives, it is necessary to discuss other issues such as the building situation of the city’s schools, the nutrition of the students, the lack of vacancies for students, equipment in schools and teachers’ salaries.
