In order to continue joining efforts to address the educational backlog, the Ministry of Education of the State Government and the National Union of Workers of the Ministry of Health Section 67, signed a collaboration agreement so that their members can accredit their basic and high school education.
The agreement was signed by the head of the Segey, Liborio Vidal Aguilar, and the secretary general of this union, Vicente Lopez Cardeña, who committed to work as a team to generate opportunities for health personnel affiliated to the SNTSA to obtain the certificate of the school level they have pending and wish to complete.
The event was attended by the legal director of the SEGEY, Ricardo Cruz Campos, the general director of Basic Education, Linda Basto Avila, the director of Higher Education, Sergio Victoria Palma and Roger Torres Cross, institutional liaison of SNTSA section 67, educational authorities, representatives and members of this union organization.
“My recognition and gratitude to this vital sector in our society and even more in this pandemic we are living, because they never stopped their work. Now it is our turn to add from our trench to help them finish their studies and have more elements to improve themselves,” said the Secretary of Education.
He added that the actions of this agreement are part of the State Strategy for Attention to Educational Backwardness, through which last year, 12,000 people were able to complete their basic education and 670 people returned to high school with the “Return to your High School” initiative. He emphasized that these figures, more than numbers, are stories of success and pride for their families.
In his speech, Vicente Lopez Cardeña, Secretary General of SNTSS Section 67, expressed his gratitude for this alliance that provides opportunities for workers who, for whatever reason, were unable to complete a certain level of education and want to complement their work experience with a certificate in basic or higher education.

To this end, the activities will be carried out in the facilities of the Educational Development Centers (CEDE) located in the State of Yucatan.
