Given the measures announced by the Community of Madrid for the 2021/22 academic year, FSIE Madrid, the Independent Union of Education and Care for the Disability of the region, deeply regrets that the ratios of the past year are not maintained, this measure being the one that greater and better effects generated at the school and health level. The union shows its disappointment and insists on the need to lower the ratios in Madrid classrooms to achieve a safe and quality education.
It should be remembered that the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso , announced last June a decrease in the ratio in all educational centers in the region as of the 2022/23 school year. This measure was applauded by FSIE Madrid, however, “its form of progressive application will leave excessive ratios for many years, a fact that we have repeatedly denounced,” they explain from the union.
FSIE Madrid positively values the presence in the classrooms
The Community of Madrid proposed last week, during the Education Sector Conference in which representatives of the autonomous communities and the Government of Spain participated, a 2021/22 school year “with maximum attendance at all levels, a greater reinforcement plan school and the maintenance of sanitary measures in the face of COVID-19 “, facts that FSIE Madrid values positively, as long as they warn” this presence is applied following all the necessary sanitary regulations to safeguard the safety of all “.
An incorporation of “insufficient” reinforcement teachers
On the other hand, FSIE Madrid affirms that, “even assuming a totally insufficient measure, the incorporation of reinforcement teachers must be implemented proportionally in the two networks supported with public funds, so our organization will ensure that this is the case. Concerted teaching cannot be excluded from any measure that implies an improvement of the system. “
With all this, in this return to the classrooms and remembering the exceptional development of the past year, FSIE Madrid “offers all its support and involvement so that this school year runs as normally as possible”, they conclude.
