The most important day of the year

Teacher's day should be honored as few. Teachers should be. Without education there is no freedom or future. But to us, are we interested?

El día más importante del año

Teacher's day should be the most important day of the year, along with that of the  doctor . It's not demagogy. I'm really sorry.

 Education  is one of the most important issues in the country. But here, in our blessed  Argentina  , it seems not.

I don't know if  Perón started. I don't think. I guess it was before. But Perón said, “Espadrilles, yes; books, no.” It is a stigma that remains until today. Because while our people are highly literate, every day they are more slave to power. That's not educating him. In a local TED talk, Mayra Arena, a girl who came out of a misery village, ratifies it. The poor are not taught the culture of work or progress. So they think the state (we) has to give them.

In my last  Editorial , I wrote that Japanese people in school are prepared for life. Whereas we fill them with data here. That's not good.

Not only does the government on duty do not seem to care about the uneducated, but the teachers do not seem to care either. I have a lot to reproach you. Not everyone, clearly. Yes to those who stop all the time. Those who ask for licenses for diseases they don't have. Those who think they have a lifetime charge. And those who don't want to be trained anymore, I don't think they're the teachers that  Sarmiento is. Father of the classroom. The one who understood everything.

A government that does nothing, more teachers who do nothing, is an explosive cocktail. That's how we are and we will be. Of course they'd have to win more than anyone else. Of course it's a noble profession. Essential even for the freedom of peoples.

As long as we don't understand it and claim what is right, it's not going to change the thing. Poor budgets will follow. Schools without works. The mayors who steal or misuse the funds for these  works . Curricula that does not form for life 21st century. It's up to us. But to us, we don't seem to care too.
