The governor of Nuevo León, Jaime Rodríguez, asked this Thursday to educational authorities of the entity to prepare to prepare in the rest of the year the classes are remote and not in the classrooms, since the possibility of having green traffic light because of the level of COVID epidemic that persists is still distant.
“We will not return in person until the traffic light is green and goes long, very long,” the state representative said, according to a statement from the Government of Nuevo León, after having a video conference with local educational authorities.
“There is no little light that I say to them ‘it may be in September’, ‘in October’, does not exist; this year we’re going to throw it out, get ready mentally, remotely, totally at a distance, so it’s going to be.”
In the coming days, he said, federal and state authorities are expected to issue a date for the start of the 2020-2021 school year.
Yesterday the Ministry of Public Education (SEP) ruled out the face-to-face return to classes in August, as the coronavirus epidemic continued in Mexico.
The Secretary of Education, Esteban Moctezuma, met with members of the National Council of Educational Authorities and it was noted that they were considering resuming classes remotely in that month, at least.
