The senator and president of the Education Commission of the Upper House, Yasna Provost (DC), addressed problems related to school education, such as absenteeism, desertions and acts of violence. In this regard, he criticized the minister Marco Antonio Avilapointing out that he has a “decoupled agenda” with emergencies.

“What we have raised very transversally is that we have not seen the one that for the 2023 Budget is in charge of implementing an educational recovery plan in all educational establishments in the country, especially those that serve the most vulnerable school populations,” said Provoste in conversation with The Counter in La Clave.

“This requires more resources than the current ones, but it also requires more will. I believe that in this we have not found will on the part of the Ministry of Education in particular, a minister who has an agenda that is very uncoupled from these realities,” said the DC legislator. .

“We see it with an agenda that is very uncoupled from these emergencies that today means the exclusion of thousands of young people from the school system (dropout), absenteeism from initial education to school education, and we are also concerned that we do not have a clear agenda from the ministry itself to address issues of healthy coexistence,” he emphasized.

In turn, he commented that he met with Ávila before he took office (prior to March 11). According to Provoste, he told her about the problems with the two Local Public Education Services (SLEP) in the Atacama Region. “None have been resolved; what’s more, the problems have worsened this year,” he said.

Coexistence and acts of violence

Provoste also addressed the problems of coexistence and acts of violence registered in educational establishments.

“When the return of the students to face-to-face classes began and these situations of very unhealthy school coexistence and problems of violence began to be evidenced in a very painful way, we asked the Executive, the Ministry of Education, to be able to take action” , said.

“We looked at projects that were in the commission in the second stage, that could be quickly a law of the Republic, and well, there was no echo,” he said.

In addition, he explained that “the Government announced to us that they were going to support a project that was in the Chamber in the first stage. To our surprise, we began to process this project last week in the Education Commission, and one asks a routine question , ‘what is the financial report’ (…) Zero, there was no more weight”.
