Secretariat of Education opens ‘night shifts’ due to high demand in Yucatan schools

In view of the increase in school enrollment at the elementary and high school levels in the state and due to the lack of budget to create new classrooms in schools in various areas of the state, the Ministry of Education of the Government of Yucatan (SEGEY) said that night shifts are being opened in various schools to meet the demand, with Umán, Kanasín and Conkal being the urban areas with the greatest need for spaces.

The State official said that, with respect to the 2023-2024 school year, the primary and secondary school spaces are already full, so a strategy had to be thought of to be able to incorporate more children that year after year are registered in the various schools not only in Merida, but also in the interior of the State.

“In terms of enrollment for this next school year we are doing very well, in fact we have had to look for strategies, since each year there are more children and young people entering to study, so we have had to implement evening shifts so that students can be incorporated into the classes, This while we plan how to make more classrooms in the schools with the Institute for the Development and Certification of the Educational and Electrical Physical Infrastructure of Yucatan (IDEFEEY), since it must be recognized that sometimes what prevents various things from being carried out is the budget,” he said.

Finally, he commented that in Merida there are areas in which due to the migration of communities and police stations there is more concentration of children and young people, so they require more attention with respect to the opening of these new shifts, however, in the conurbation municipalities such measures will also have to be applied:

“If we talk about the city, the areas with the highest demand are Los Héroes, Pensiones and Caucel, and the part of Poniente that has been having an important growth; on the other hand; regarding the municipalities, we can talk about Kanasín, Umán, Conkal and even Valladolid and Tizimín that also have a lot of growth, at the same time we are looking at solving the issue of teachers for these shifts because it goes hand in hand, but details will be fine-tuned in the coming weeks.”
