Exposing Ayuso’s lies in education

0 20

When a lie is used as a political weapon, the only possible defense is the objectification of facts and the appearance that a lie is a lie, that truth has no complications, and that truth is an irrefutable argument. To do this, the media must play its role independent of power and immunize serious citizens to condemn opposition and poisoning. Otherwise, impunity is absolute, even if the data is fictitious and the hoax continues to infiltrate the population. In the debate about the state of the community of the Madrid region, President Isabel Díaz Ayuso was completely exploited in the campaign which disseminated a misleading vision of the state of education in Madrid. Here are the processed data and the arguments it offers:

Madrid ‘invests heavily in education’

Ayuso said Madrid are spending 5.761 million. Although this money seems like a lot to keep in her purse, it is not enough to provide quality education to 1,228,158 students. She, such a proponent of the rule of three, could use that and relate these millions to GDP. This is the traditional way of measuring educational effort. The result is only 2% compared to an average of 4.8% in Spain or 6-7% invested by European countries. If we compare the education budget per resident, it is 754 euros and the education budget per student is 4,181 euros, while the average in Spain is 1,076 and 5,779 respectively. Madrid ranks at the bottom of all autonomous communities (CCAA), despite being the richest. This shows that he does not care much about education. It should be noted that it is Madrid that allocates the most money to private companies and school vouchers, even for wealthier families.

Madrid has a good approach to public education

It’s too cheesy to say when the real shock theory is applied to public schools: unreversed cuts, sky-high rates, teacher defiance, and privatization that just doesn’t stop. Public classrooms are shrinking, new schools are being banned, and students are being sent to private schools with inadequate public offerings and multimillion-dollar checks. The result of destruction: 67% in Spain and over 90% in major European countries, the capital city of Madrid educates less than 40% of the community and only 54% of the community.

Madrid – “Educational Model of Excellence”

The latest PISA report says Madrid has otherwise suffered a sharp decline in maths, science, language and reading comprehension. Also the poor comparative results with Evau of the rest of Spain (Position no. 15) show the generality of the model. This is explained by low investment, the presence of private concert networks and isolation. And I will not tire of repeating it: only the dedication and quality of public education teachers prevents an even greater disaster. Maybe Ayuso thinks it’s fair to have a center (IES San Mateo) with a “Bachelor of Excellence” that doesn’t even get the best rating in Evau.

Madrid ‘offers equal opportunities’

All educational studies (“Save the Children” by F. Javier Murillo and Cynthia Martinez-Garrido of the Autonomous University of Madrid) deny this and confirm that education in Madrid is very different. The latest from EsadeEsPol is devastating: the school does not correct the initial inequality, but, on the contrary, increases it. We are at the top of school segregation, particularly at the bottom of socioeconomic and equity. This is done on purpose. The dual public network (forgotten) and combined-private (promotional and funding) create this stark effect of unequal classes and schools for the rich and schools for the poor. Different socio-economic levels? But since social class does not exist for Ayuso, and Osorio does not see the poor, he is insisting on a radical neoliberal model, where equality of opportunity is a mirage and its absence creates a classier and less homogenous society.

Madrid ‘reduced the number of students in the classroom’

This measure will be applicable only during the first year of the second stage of childhood (four years). This means that if it continues to apply at this rate, it will take a decade to reach ESO. Declining scores are teachers’ cries for better teaching (experience, pandemics have shown that results improve significantly with fewer students per class). Madrid has the highest rates in Spain. It is the last of the CCAAs in elementary school and the final of the CCAAs in all others: ESO, Bachillerato, FP Intermediate and Superior Grades. For example, it is common to have more than 30 in ESO and up to 38 in high school.

Madrid ‘offers sufficient public space for vocational training’

They claim that FP positions have increased by 50,000 during Ayuso’s three years, but admit that only 17,000 of them are public, i.e. only one in three. And that place remained without alternative. Ayuso says, because all the kids want to go to the kitchen because they see Masterchef, the badass, blushing. The indisputable fact is that last year 29,000 people and this year 33,000 people wanted to study in community centers and since they cannot find places, where is the freedom of choice?

Madrid doesn’t pay the rich with school checks

Ayuso claims that most of the checks go to households with incomes below 20,000 euros per capita. But, even if it did, it does not diminish the scandal, for there are still very rich families living outside the gift of what they call “the majority”; And with the majority talking bar set at 20,000 euros a year, we’re still talking about what families with two children with an income like the Prime Minister’s salary can collect. And don’t forget that the ultimate goal is to fuel the process of plagiarizing public school students to transfer them to private schools.

Madrid ‘Works well with education teachers’

In Madrid, 18 study periods were not restored. They say they are going to hire 1,266 more teachers, but the truth is that between the 2020/21 and 2021/22 school years, there are 3,768 fewer public teachers (MEFP data). In the 2022/23 school year, public secondary schools alone will have 1,000 fewer teachers, although enrollment will increase by 1.6% (according to ADIMAD). As ADIMAD’s president tells him (what do they know), “Osorio can’t lie to everyone all the time.” Madrid needs another 12,216 teachers (according to CCOO calculations) to implement the 18 study periods set in Law 4/2019 for low scores, support and reinforcement, counselors and welfare coordinators. And 25.22% is unbearably temporary.

As for teachers’ salaries, they have been frozen for a decade and are now being increased by 75 and 90 euros for primary and secondary school teachers, which is a third of inflation, which is 10.5%. Misbehavior of teachers as well as medical staff is another avenue of privatization, as professionals begin to fall short in many sectors.

In Madrid, “it’s not taught in schools”.

88% of recognized centers in Madrid are Catholic. The ideology of all religious schools is defined by definition. This is a medium term political investment. The PP education consultant also stated that for every approved school (they are usually for ages 0-18) that was approved by a district or city, PP votes increased by 3%. The desire to inculcate conservative values ​​in order to gain political hegemony of the right-wing is evident. In Madrid, the curriculum is censored because of Ayuso’s negative views (on climate change or respect for gender), and textbooks make women invisible and invisible.

Madrid – “A Model of Academic Freedom”

A society becomes less free when educational and social inequality increases exponentially. It is a travesty to talk about freedom while protecting privileges. When there are fifty demands from families asking for new community centers and they are not built because the government previously approved the centers to allow them to accept students. And when they have no choice but to do it due to pressure, they build in stages and make the work hell with endless delays. Valdebebas, Ensanche de Vallecas, El Canaveral, Parla, Rivas, Montecarmelo, San Sebastián de los Reyes, Coslada, San Fermín, Fuenlabrada… or ask half the families in Jane Goodall, Yvonne Blake, Mercedes Vera, Luna, Perez. Lorca and others.

Ayuso’s freedom is a lie in disguise. Ayuso acts like a libertarian, destroying public education: it does not build the necessary community centers, it leaves thousands of students without public vocational education, it closes the 3-6 year cycle in its kindergarten against the unanimous will of the family. Ayuso’s only “freedom” in education is to transform a fundamental right into a market and socio-economic segregation of students. By His power, who does not want to learn, but who can learn. Where is freedom of choice, where is equality of opportunity, where is justice?

Public schools are places of freedom. A place where there can be no room for discrimination based on gender, religion or economics. We believe in a different model that leaves no one behind. Where you will learn to live together and respect human rights and science. Where the dreams of girls and boys can be born equally. That’s why we will continue to protect public schools for all and sundry. Elections are coming in 2023, but now we must protest, expose the lies and take to the streets.
