The teachers' strikes that from 1980 began to make the members of Section 22 of the National Union of Education Workers (SNTE), to date 15 have affected generations of students; 5 primary level and 11 secondary. Graduates who left unfinished the contents of their materials, and even those who are already professionals.That is it pretty much in a nutshell. If a culture ignores and does not support its educational system, it will end up with a people who don't understand the world around them. They will reject knowledge, deny facts, reject science, ignore reality and open themselves to all sorts of abuse and corruption.... oh, wait. El Norte? Sound familiar?
Sociologist Samael Hernandez Ruiz felt that the educational effects caused by the strikes and marches that teachers do at different times of the school year, can not be measured, because it does not have a record of the professional performance of the generations that were formed uninterruptedly.
This said, a decline that can not be quantified in general; however, it is clearly reflected in the deskilling of teachers, since the graduates from the normal state do not cover the academic background to teach. This situation may also explain the current "unruly" behavior of workers of education, as there is a clear lack of direction of the movement itself, because many of its demands have no reason to be.
"They go to the streets to demand the release of political, social leaders alleged prisoners, street crying for help, when all they do is politicize their demands," he criticized.
