More than 700 teachers in the eastern Cuban province of Las Tunas have approached the municipal directorates of Education with the aim of rejoining the sector after the announcement, last June 27, of new measures to increase wages for the budgeted sector.
Nilser Piñeda Cruz, provincial director of education, explained to the Cuban News Agency that the insertion of a large number of these teachers and professors will increase the educational coverage of the province from 96 to 99 percent, with the provisions and the necessary protocols adopted by the sector in the territory.
The director said that from the very moment that the country's top management pronounced on the issue, a whole process of consultation began for those professionals who had once abandoned pedagogy in any of their teachings and now wish to return.
A review of the performance in the last educational centers that worked, in the community, and the willingness and necessary preparation to maintain and even raise the indicators that Las Tunas exhibits in education, with commitment and responsibility, are some of the elements that the process includes, the executive added.
The impact of the measure has been very positive - he pointed out - because although Las Tunas has not been characterized by a high deficit nor by the poor reintegration of retirees into the classrooms, the graduations of the two pedagogical schools of the province, the University College and the support of different professionals through the contract modality, now it has been possible to give a greater response to the needs of the schools.
With regard to teacher training in priority subjects such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, geography and Spanish, in which we have had debts in recent years to enter university and graduate from such specialized, it is expected that gradually and as a result of the salary measures themselves, they will be resolved, concluded Piñeda Cruz.
The successes in the national knowledge contests, the advances in the application of the forms of work of the third perfecting of education in 32 popular councils, the guarantee of studies and promotion and the rapid response in the recovery of the schools before the passage of meteorological phenomena, stand out among the factors that have made it possible for Las Tunas to maintain the status of Outstanding for six consecutive years, achievements that endorse the constant work of its teachers.
