A number of questions were raised by the State University Consortium (Quache) after its monthly meeting in Rancagua regarding how did the Ministry of Education implement remuneration policies,
On this occasion, the President of Cuchec and the Rector of the University of Chile Ennio Vivaldi asked the government’s authorities for the consequences and assured that funds not available for this measure, to smooth over the institutions and argue that this is a bad idea.
In the same line, the academician regretted that changes to the original budget for state universities because, in their opinion, these schools are now undergoing economic damage, benefiting individuals.
"The budget actually, what he did, took 10 billion from state universities and add 33 billion to private universities“Vivaldi dismissed, according to the same organization.
“That's what was done. After working in parliament we managed to cancel the seizure of 10 billion in public universitiesAnd again this is a question that we would like to discuss with the government, ”he said.
Equally critical was shown by lack of authority to manage the portfolio at the session of Cuecha, despite the invitation of the Minister Marcelo Cubillos.
Vivaldi added that today he planned to give the Coordinating Council of public universities, as provided for by the Law, but he had to be postponed in the absence of representatives of the Ministry of Education.https://media.biobiochile.cl/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/el28vivaldimineducdichosnp2.mp3
President Cuech argued that the Coordination Council would change the accessibility that students have in public schools, as this will allow collaboration with all universities, improving the quality of education they receive.
“We had an expectation (that) here we were going to make an announcement about the creation of a council. It is clear that this did not happen, but we expect it to happen soon., but I think this is very good news for young Chileans. And it is very good that state universities can welcome these young people in much better conditions. I think this will be a big step forward for state universities, ”said Vivaldi, according to the same letter.
