José Miguel Soeiro, secretary of that union in the municipality, assured Radio 26:
«We have advanced a little in the attention and the stimulation to the teacher, two concepts that are not equal and that, unfortunately, are equated to the detriment of the welfare of the teachers. This program of actions aimed at satisfying the most urgent needs of our teachers was an initiative of the Government of Matanzas that later was replicated in the country, but we do not have here the best experiences.
«Stability fails and the scope is very limited. We are far from fulfilling the goal of the teacher feeling recognized for the work he does. The most prominent must be distinguished, but the help must reach everyone.
«In the budget of this school year we managed to include these expenses, but there is still a long way to go in that direction.»Other topics of interest for these professionals are the deterioration of school infrastructure and professional improvement.
