They will be distributed among girls and boys from the 3, 4 and 5 year old rooms of all public schools and zero-fee private schools.
Minister of Education Juan Pablo Lichtmeier spoke at a press conference to announce the arrival in the province of the National Program “Books for Learning” for the elementary level. In this sense, Tucuman received 43,000 books that will be distributed to 837 kindergartens to be distributed among girls and boys in the 3, 4 and 5-year-old classrooms of all state-run public schools and private management with zero quota.
The goal of the program is to intensify the literacy process, optimize time and give continuity to the pedagogical work in the homes. For this purpose, a selection of texts was made by specialists appointed by the education authorities of the 24 jurisdictions in a federal and transparent process.
In 2022, 230,000 books were delivered for primary level learning; and with this new game, the province will reach more than 273,000 copies for boys and girls of both levels.
On the other hand, Lichtmeier focused on current problems in the field of education. “Today is a very important day because the arrival of these workbooks is materializing which will enable the development of literacy, numeracy and personal skills because these are crucial years for boys and girls. Again we are faced with a universal policy because it reaches everyone and helps teachers in their daily work; he emphasized the investment in education as a comprehensive policy by the government of Osvaldo Jaldo, as a public policy in aspects of construction, pedagogy and teacher training, and that they are also related to the welfare of the people -such as student ticket and food services”, he emphasized.
He also added: “I appreciate the unconditional support of the national government, Chief of Staff Juan Manzur and Minister of Education Jaime Percik. In these brochures there is a contribution from each of the jurisdictions on issues that are addressed because the proximity to history, poetry that the girls that the boys will find here and have in common with the history, culture and identity of Tucuman is something important. This speaks of from a federal point of view and from a pedagogical point of view we celebrate it”.
On the other hand, the head of the education portfolio referred to the demonstration of students of IES Lola Mora due to the lack of public transport after class: “Yesterday the ministerial team went to IES Lola Mora and there was an agreement, so the end time of classes is 10 pm, for to ensure moving in groups There is normal activity and the dialogue tables are being developed There will be hybrid hours, that is, part of the hours up to 10 p.m. asynchronous work on coordination of teachers and students”.
Regarding the dialogue with the representatives of the teachers’ unions, he said that “Governor Jaldo has on his agenda everything that is related to the improvement of the teaching task, and the issue of salaries is part of a whole. This week there were meetings with representatives of training workers and we have an ongoing dialogue. Investment in construction is one of the pillars that is coming at a steady pace, we recently made a public report and before the end of the year we will present it. We are working hard to move forward with secondary school securitization.”
Finally, regarding learning tests, he assured that “our position is that assessment is part of learning and we have a permanent assessment system at the provincial, national and international levels to have a map of where we are and to do we know where we are better and what we need to deepen?
Javier Millay’s speech in Tucuman
Asked about Javier Millay’s speech in the province of Tucuman, where he focused his dissertation on Alberti’s ideas, the minister expressed his opinion that “the central proposition of Alberti and of today’s Argentina is that if we want a better country, we need a fair distribution of wealth and opportunity in relation to the interior and its connection with the city of Buenos Aires. I think it’s very important to go back to this idea of Alberdian, and if someone talks about Alberdi, it should be in line with the policies he proposed.”
“We propose a federal Argentina with a greater distribution of wealth and opportunities for the north of Argentina; and we propose an Argentina where the rule of law and the rule of law rule, things that I don’t see proposed in a speech with the matrix from Buenos Aires, where there is no federal perspective and where there are clearly central aspects of democracy and the rule of law that are not taken into account , because they are incompatible with the discourses of intolerance,” he concluded.
