Note from FETE-UGT:
This morning, parents of students are concentrated at the gates of the school.
The union and the PSOE have supported the protesters and pledged to intervene with the Ministry of Education, Training and Employment of the Region of Murcia
No less than seven years are demanding a new school for their children the parents of the students of Sacred Heart College Librilla.
Their demands are more than justified, but still no news or the City Council or the Ministry of Education, Training and Employment, although recognizing the urgent need to build a new school.
The flurry of excuses is constant and the situation has become untenable.
First, are exceeded ratios of students per class in children under 3 years, 1 and 4 primary school with 27, 26 and 29 pupils respectively and in addition to the splittings made in previous years, this year the school board wants to occupy prefabricated classroom and the school library to house children from 5 years and 2 Âº of Primary.
Moreover, the lack of space has filled the patience shown by parents in all these years.
There are no computer labs, or educational support, or motor skills of primary, not to mention the lack of changing rooms and staff room, in addition to working conditions that have to support teachers of English, French and religion who are forced to give classes in the file room and photocopier.
Not to mention the widespread deterioration in some facilities with more than 35 years old and not meeting, not at all, minimum health and safety necessary for an infant and primary school.
Therefore, from now until a solution is received, parents have decided that their children do not attend class from 9 to 10 pm every Friday, focusing on the vicinity of the school at the same time to require the Administration Local and Regional commitments necessary to, first, to realize the construction of a new center, and on the other hand, provide the Sacred Heart school Librilla space and resources so that teaching can be imparted with minimum guarantees quality.
This happened today and there was also keen to be present the Federation of Workers Education (FETE) of UGT Murcia.
Its Secretary General, Antonio Francisco Ferrandez, expressed his support and said he is committed to "a claim to the Ministry of Education in the 2010 budget will include the construction of a new school and steps taken to solve the problems generated by bad school planning. "
Moreover, Ferrández wanted to make clear that "everything that today we have come to claim here, we'll sue the Monitoring Committee of the Social Pact for Education".
