According to the local info7 medium, the parents accused on Monday that the director of the 74th Secondary of the San Bernabé sector refused to receive the jobs in person, the same that they were unable to deliver online because they do not have the service at home.
Families argued that they did not have money to pay for internet service because the COVID-19 pandemic affected their economy.
«The principal has already failed us to several children, and pretend she wants the internet. We have no job and it does not lend itself at all, it has already failed almost everyone, between 60 and 70 students,» a parent said.
Parents asked the authorities to separate the principal from office and force the school to receive the students’ jobs.
