After two years of pandemic, Campeche does not have official data on the conditions of the schools, it indicates in its report “Operation back to school: The State Experience 2021” of the organization México Evalúa, which it carried out together with the School of Government and Public Transformation of the Tecnológico de Monterrey and with the Education in Equity and Quality initiative.
It also reports that they allocated a budget of 18 million pesos for 43 schools and another 20 million to rehabilitate those with a lower degree of vandalism (100 schools), but “no information was presented on their current status.”
It should be remembered that in the community of Arellano in the municipality of Champoton, At the beginning of September, parents asked for a new school due to the deterioration of the 56-year-old school. First, the Director of Elementary Schools, Guadalupe Torres Cu, promised that she would build a new campus, but two days later the Secretary of Education Raul Pozos Lanz He said that the educational center is not considered for a new construction, but “we will channel the demands so that they are considered in the area to be built.”
The text of México Evalúa points out that “the size of the enrollment in relation to the population of the State, Campeche has a high proportion of rural areas with little connectivity in the region, which makes going back to school a major challenge.”
In addition, that in the category “Improve infrastructure conditions”, According to the census carried out by the current government —after calling for a general return to face-to-face classes in the entity— it was found that 7.6 percent of the schools (172) had significant damage. The return to classes would be until the completion of the rehabilitation work, which was not done either.
Indifferent to protocols
On the other hand, parents expressed fear before the confirmed cases of monkeypox in the Entity, coupled with the prevailing risk of contagion by the COVID-19.
Guadalupe Chan acknowledged that “I am afraid, I think, like any mother, at this point we are all exposed, but I think we can avoid it by not letting our guard down and by respecting the measures issued by the Ministry of Health, in this case for the monkey pox”.
Meanwhile, Samanta González also revealed that she felt a little afraid when taking her two children to the campus, and indicated that she will not stop doing so, because she has to work and has no one to take care of them, because the risk is everywhere. but he stressed that by following the sanitary measures he hopes they can maintain their health.
Carlos Briceño mentioned that “we know that with the use of the face mask and the application of the gel we can reduce the possibility of contagion; In particular, our little ones are vaccinated against smallpox and at school they are required to wear at least three face masks, which they can change after recess or in the event of carelessness.”
In the report “Back to School Operation: The 202 State Experience1”, in what they call the challenges to be addressed, state that “within the back-to-school protocol, actions are established for socio-emotional care, which fall significantly on teachers and educational personnel, while a plan for the care of children is not established. healthcare professionals”.
Regrets that the cases of contagion during the return to classes were mostly published by the SNTE due to the disinterest of the Health authority. Throughout the period, the Government only registered two minors and 10 teachers, while the SNTE had reported 38 cases in teachers.
Similarly, it underlines that “with the transition of the Government”, the cases of contagion in schools were not more transparent, since the reports found only establish six minors infected as of November 11, 2021.
It questions that “despite having a record of a diagnostic evaluation in the Entity, there is no clarity on how it was used to adapt the curriculum and the learning of students in the State, in order to meet the educational challenge derived from the pandemic” .
