The governor of Buenos Aires, Axel Kicillof, highlighted in Miramar that the province of Buenos Aires “believes in public education”, for what “defends it and invests in public education” and argued that it is the way to accompany and carry out a “true transformation of the educational system.”

“This is part of what is done, we work to transform the educational system of millions of Buenos Aires residents to have a better future,” said the president when participating in the meeting organized by the Provincial Directorate of Higher Education.
In that sense, he pointed out that “the policy that is carried out by the Ministry of Education is not only related to a true revolution in school infrastructure, where we have inaugurated 105 new school buildings that despite the pandemic, the expansion of the educational system did not stop.
“At the same time, hewe have more than 4 thousand finished works that have to do with building infrastructure, with maintenance, that had a lot of abandonment which means at the same time for those people who attended schools a danger”, he highlighted in that line.
Kicillof stated that “this open town hall is an activity that already has its third chapter” and “two more meetings are planned for the rest of the year, all very large.”
