Federal budget cut, blow to education in Yucatan

MÉRIDA, Yucatán.- 2021 will be a difficult year for the education in Yucatan, by influencing factors such as Federation budget cut, reduction of resources to priority programs and the impact of virtual classes for the coronavirus Covid-19.

The head of the Secretary of Education of the State Government (Segey), Loreto Villanueva Trujillo, reported yesterday that, for example, it is already known that the 2021 Expenditure Budget of the Federation (PEF) does not include financing for vital programs like the one of Schools of Full Time (FTE) and of School Coexistence.

Addressed yesterday, after the commemorative act for the CX anniversary of the Mexican Revolution, the official said that there is concern about the drastic cut to the Detailed Programming of the Projection of Enrollment (Prodet) that serves for the training and updating of teachers.

“There are many programs that have been cut and others come to zero, we are concerned because a very complicated year is coming in which we will hardly be able to do new projects, we are going to work asking teachers and principals to focus on key learnings”, he limited.

Villanueva Trujillo pointed out that the training of teachers will be privileged, to reinforce online learning and work in a quality educational environment, since the priority is that there is no dropout and there is permanent communication between teachers and parents, so that students continue your learning process.

He stressed that in the distance education program, due to Covid-19, teachers have become workers 24/7, with the aim of keeping an eye on students.

Regarding the return to face-to-face classes, the head of the Segey said that there is still no date for it and they are awaiting the provisions of the Yucatan Health Secretariat (SSY), a dependency that marks the moment for the schools to be opened .
