Buenos Aires approved the creation of a teaching university


November 23, 2018 – 1:04
The law was approved yesterday amid protests in the sector and left party unions.

In the midst of strong protests and only with the voice of the ruling party, the Buenosair Legislature yesterday approved the formation of UniCaba, a proposal opposed by the teacher union.

The law was approved thanks to the support of 34 MPs from Vamos Juntos, because there were no other blocks of enclosures that supported the initiative, in one day which was also marked by a 24-hour teaching strike.

Outside the building, guerrilla guerrillas, student centers and left groups maintained a large concentration of the initiative and clashed with members of the City Police.

A strong security operation was installed in the area, so the Legislative Body remained fully fenced in and deputies had to enter about 6 Thursday to their offices, a few hours before the project began to be treated on site.

During the session, which was closed to the public and from which only the chancellor of 29 teachers could participate, the opposition questioned especially UniCaba's operations and financing.

Kirchnerism calls for "ending hypocrisy" and considers that, with this law, the ruling party "tries to build a model based on students who become individualist entrepreneurs and teachers must be disciplined."

"I want a city where students are trained to live, not for markets," said legislator Leandro Santoro, from the Unidad Ciudadana.

The representative of Evolution, meanwhile, stressed that universities were not "solid budgets", because the ruling decided to change the initial initiative and keep the teacher in the first draft proposed to be eliminated. "Previously, UniCaba's funding came from 29 institutes, it was the only one that had a solid project, now we don't know where the money will come from," said Leandro Halperin. They also assume that the new organization "will not be able to compete with training centers" that have worked in the City, so these tertiary institutions "will disappear in one hit".
