Consequences of coronavirus
They denounce that Minister Cela intends to modify with a ministerial order an organic law that requires repeating with more than three suspended
A teacher from a high schoolMalagaYesterday I received a call from a mother asking if her son was already approved or had to continue doing the homework. It is the conclusion that he drew after watching the television appearance of Isabel Cela yesterday, which promised that the students will pass the course in a generalized way due to the coronavirus pandemic. Much of the teaching staff is “puzzled” by the message that the Minister ofEducation. They say it “relaxes the students” and “implies that you can throw in the towel.”
In the words of theAssociation of Autonomous Centers of Private Education (Acade): “Passing students without having fulfilled the planned objectives and without having demonstrated it in the corresponding assessment tests will also be harmful in the medium and long term.”
UnionsCSIFandAnpeand the teachers associationPLIS Education, pleaseThey also consider that what Cela has proposed regarding promotion and titling is against the current law, the Lomce, since it establishes that in theTHATYou cannot pass a course with more than three students and inhigh schoolwith more than two (articles28and36).
This rule also says that in order to go to the final evaluation of the ESO, students must have a maximum of two failures (article29) and that the graduate degree at this stage is obtained (article31) with a minimum grade of 5, for what is counted in a70%the average of the grades of the ESO and in a30%the final evaluation grade. The article36aRemember that to sit for the final Baccalaureate assessment you must have everything approved. On the other hand, what Cela is proposing through a ministerial order is to pass the course “without taking into account limitations that affect the number of pending areas.”
“There is no room for general approval”
“The form of promotion and titling is regulated by organic law and the alarm decree does not modify this normative reality. The general approval is a formula that has no place in our legislation,” he warns.Mario Gutirrez, of CSIF, which recalls that, “in addition to the Lomce, the Constitution grants exclusive competence to the State for the regulation of the conditions for obtaining academic degrees”.
“It is not acceptable to leave the responsibility of the CCAA to decide what it is titled, that is established in the Lomce, which is an organic law that is not repealed,” he points out.Nicols Fernndez Guisadoby Anpe. “What can not be taken advantage of in any case is a situation like the one we are experiencing, as hard as it is, to undermine the current legislation, the autonomy of the centers and the freedom of the teacher’s professorship. Of course, you have to be flexible but also rigorous. We can be flexible in the courses that are not term of educational level, because 4 of the ESO, 2 of Baccalaureate and the degrees of FP lead to a degree and that acquisition of title must be governed by the principles in force That cannot be ignored. “
The Sector Conference agreement will have a tremendous effect on teachers, pitting parents and students against teachers, who will face brutal pressure to go to evaluation meetings with approved faculty. The Government is transferring responsibility for a serious infraction of the law to teachers and teaching centers. An organic law cannot be corrected with an agreement of oneSectoral Conferencel. The teachers should not do anything other than comply with the law, so they cannot approve the promotion and general qualification of the students, “they point out in the association of teachers of the Balearic Islands PLIS Education, please.
Manuel Blanco Martin, director of theIES Son Claderade Palma, and former delegate of the High Educational Inspection in the Balearic Islands with the Government of Mariano Rajoy (PP) relates: “In my institute we have several students with five or six suspended in the first and in the second evaluation and the Government of the Balearic Islands He has just given instructions so that everyone has a positive grade. How do I tell my teachers to approve these students? What the minister proposes is illegal because the criteria for the promotion and qualification of students are established in the basic regulations and Cela it will have to change the reference regulations, instead of leaving it to the autonomous communities. “
