Through a statement, they pointed out that the measure is “a whirligig with only one option, ´Pasan Todo´“.
There is concern about the low number of class hours

At the same time, they stated: “It harms the one who accumulates previous subjects since it only provides instances of evaluation and no support spacesof recovery with face-to-face classes and qualified teachers in the owed or previous subjects.
“It also harms those who do not owe subjects and are studying, because their teachers will take them out for the examining tables in order to achieve approval for existence. While they are being examined, they are not studying either,” he continues. Then he throws: “It arises a ‘Let’s make sure everything is fine’“.

Criticism of the teachers’ union: “They hide the statistics'”
In this sense, the general secretary of the Self-summoned Teachers’ Guild, Nilda Beatriz Patino, indicated that although they are owing matters in the bulletin, it will be promoted as “assisted promotion” and indicate that it is “because even if the teacher says that he did not pass, pass grade to recover”.
