Resolution by National Educational Council called "a stab in the back"

Resolution by National Educational Council called "a stab in the back"
So says the president of the Association of Private Educational Institutions
SD. The representative of the Association of Private Educational Institutions (Ainep) said yesterday that they have begun a process of searching for documents that support the investments that were carried out last year and that justify the increase in tuition.

Rafael Rodriguez, who represents 138 private educational centers in the National District, said that the decision by the National Educational Council (CNE) was a "stab in the back", in response to the provocations the Ministry of Education received from the National Federation of Private Schools (Fenacep).

He indicated that never have things been so bitter nor with controls so tight.

In the meantime, the representative of the Fenacep, Rosa Ariza, preferred not to comment on the resolutions by the CNE, which forbids the increase in tuition rates and prohibits grades and other documents from being retained pending payment, until after meeting to discuss the issues.

Ariza said that they do not have a date for the meeting because the president of the Federation, Fauntly Garrido, is not in the country.

For her part, the president of the Senate Education Commission, Cristina Lizardo, said that she would ask the legislators to be vigilant so that the decision of the Council is obeyed.

"We have to make an evaluation, before the end of the school year because you take on a commitment with the school where you send your children, then we are going to see how often they will make these tuition increases and what conditions oblige the institution to make the required increase and everything should be done under a consensus," she said.
