Teacher's Union Leader Says MEDUCA Not Ready For Start of 2012 School Year

Schools & Education According to the teachers' union leader Luis Lopez, the Ministry of Education is not ready to start the 2012 school year. He said several colleagues who work in difficult to reach areas fear transportation will not be available to take them to their schools. Lopez also said there are not enough teachers available to teach classes. (Telemetro)

Editor's Comment: The 2012 school year in Panama is supposed to start soon. They lost a week of preparation time in some areas due to the strike. But whatever the challenges, I'm sure the officials at the Ministry of Education will be addressing the problems and shortcomings. I'm also sure the leaders of the teacher's union won't pass up any opportunity to toss stones at the management. It's the game they play. The kids will go to school and get the best education available in the public school system in Panama, such as it is. Not to take anything away from the Minister of Education Lucy Molinar - she's fighting like hell to make improvements and upgrades (applause), with the teacher's union fighting and kicking and resisting and screaming the whole way (boo).
