How the year will be spent in the Province of Buenos Aires
The Government of the Buenos Aires province defined this Tuesday the criteria for the promotion of the 2021 school year. The provincial executive distributed a document to schools that provides for greater recovery instances for those who do not meet the minimum learning and a more “considerate” look when evaluating by teachers.
The text issues a warning to teachers and institutions when evaluating, posing a more “contemplative” position: “It will be necessary a professional, collective, and collaborative work of all the teaching teams of each institution since also in the evaluation and knowledge accreditation we must locate how the teaching was developed in each case and for each and every one of the students: ‘what is taught is evaluated’ “, he maintains.
The document establishes that classes against the usual day and on Saturdays are the instances provided in a mandatory way so that those who have pending knowledge in one or more curricular areas can recover and credit them. If they manage to learn everything required, they promote the biennium in December. If not, they must continue to attend strengthening classes in February 2022.
