The Student Assembly of the University of Murcia has convened this afternoon a meeting by videoconference to publicize their proposals and demands before the celebration of the exams at the University of Murcia under the face-to-face format in the third wave of the pandemic of coronavirus, as well as deficiencies in public transport. The Assembly thus wants to present a formal complaint to the University and the regional government regarding what they consider to be “a public health problem.” Political parties such as PSOE, Vox, Podemos and Izquierda Unida have confirmed their attendance at the meeting. The Region’s Student Action Front (FAE) and a representative of the teachers will also participate.
The spokesman for the Covid-19 Monitoring Committee, Jaime Pérez, ruled out yesterday that Health is going to enter, “at this time, to suspend examinations”, and argued that, if it did, it would have “to suspend many other activities.”
Verdes-Equo RM yesterday demanded from the Ministry of Education more funds “urgently” to improve working conditions in classrooms, both through “hiring teaching staff in order to reduce ratios, and with the acquisition of meters of CO2 to monitor the levels of carbon dioxide in the classrooms, as well as HEPA filters for the centers where the legal temperature is not reached ». Likewise, Podemos considered the education instruction for the return to classes “a real botch that puts minors and teachers at risk” and criticized the lack of foresight in the face of weather alerts.
For his part, the spokesman for the Citizens Parliamentary Group in the Regional Assembly, Juan José Molina, responded to the request of the Socialist deputy Antonio Espín to provide HEPA filters to the centers, reproaching him for “making the filters one of his flags now, when in November he totally ignored the proposal that we made to him from Cs to implement it as one of the three pillars for a safe return to face-to-face ”.
