The evaluation process for teachers who seek to be promoted to director, supervisor or technical assistant positions began on June 20 in 30 states, while in Michoacán and Oaxaca the evaluations remained suspended because conditions made the process “impossible.”

Teachers in the two states who were signed up to participate but were left out of the evaluation process were informed of the suspension on June 19, the National Coordination of Professional Educators Service said in a statement.

The Public Education Secretary (SEP) and state education authorities in Michoacán and Oaxaca said they will inform teachers of the time and location where they can exercise their right to participate in the evaluation process in the coming days.

The evaluations are being undertaken at 249 locations across the country, the secretariat said. The evaluations were a resounding success in the state of Guerrero, where 91.4 percent of teachers participated, the SEP said.

In the State of Mexico, Puebla, Querétaro, San Luis Potosí and 26 more states around Mexico, exams were taken to award director positions in the 251 corresponding public schools, the secretariat said.

President Enrique Peña Nieto’s decision to apply the evaluations is not up for discussion, as outlined by the Constitution and corresponding regulatory laws, Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) Deputy Manlio Fabio Beltrones Rivera said.

National Action Party (PAN) lawmaker Ricardo Anaya Cortés called on the federal government to not accept blackmail of any kind and guarantee that the evaluation process is completely carried out, in accor-dance with the spirit of the constitutional reforms approved by Congress.

“The timely application of this regulatory provision should not be negotiated for any reason,” Anaya said.

Both legislators declared that education reform must be implemented completely, including the teacher evaluations, for the development of the country.

“Implementing education reform is an urgent duty of our generation and the best way to ensure prosperity and social well-being, but also, above all, economic growth and quality employment,” Beltrones Rivera said.
