The masters of basic training In Tamaulipas, have decided to halt activities this Wednesday as no agreement has been reached with the state government in response to their demands made last Tuesday. This situation led to the confiscation of facilities by the Education Minister of Tamaulipas (SET).
Throughout today, teachers have closed several of the unit’s offices, including this one, Regional Educational Development Centers (CREDE), as a measure of the pressure.
However, the governor’s statement by Americo Villarreal Anaya could not solve the crisis.
Faced with this problem, linked to the debt owed to teachers and the lack of respect for their rights, it was agreed that no activities would take place in the schools this Wednesday.
In the afternoon, Arnulfo Rodriguez, Chair of Section 30 of the National Union of Education Workers (SNTE), called for the dismissal of the head of the SET, Lucia Aimé Castillo Pastor.
“Those who will decide are the teachers; there is complete freedom here; they will decide; I will not force them; everyone has their criteria,” he said when asked about the strike.
Schools suspend classes over SNTE protest

So far, there have been three secondary schools—two in Madero town and one in Tampico—that have warned their students that teachers will not show up to attend the union’s call.
Oil City General Secondary School No. 1 “Melchor Ocampo was quoted in a publication as saying that there would be no activities in either shift because “work routines” had to be done, but the mayor’s staff would show up.
For its part, the “Valentn Gómez Faras” secondary school, also from the oil town, openly shared that the work would be affected due to the teachers’ conflict under Section 30 of the SNTE but that it would resume work next Thursday, September 7th.
This movement was started shortly after the founding of Tamaulipas Governor Américo Villarreal Anaya He urged teachers to engage in dialogue and resolve the issues uncovered this morning in an application document deposited at the offices of the Secretary of Education in Tamaulipas.
