Pedro Castillo, the leader of the committee of regional bases of the Sutep, said that this Thursday 28th will also be a protest march in several regions in rejection of the teacher promotion test.
The president of the committee of the regional bases of the Sutep, Pedro Castillo, announced a protest march for this Thursday, September 28th in rejection to the test required for teachers to receive their raise (taken yesterday) and for a national strike on October 25th.
According to El Comercio, the test taken by almost 124,000 teachers had already filtered days before in Cajamarca. He said that even the prosecution ignored the situation completely, which, in his view, uncovers that there is a “big web of corruption in the Ministry of Education.”
He noted that the National Assembly of Sutep Regional Bases decided not to participate in the test because of the limited number of places offered in the region for the test.
Because of this, he estimated that 50% of teachers in the entire country did not take it.
He also stated that the protest march on September 28th will take place in different regions of the country and not only Lima and that the national strike on October 25th will be 24 hours.
It has already been a month since teachers were called to go back to work by the president and almost 3 weeks since the national strike was suspended.
