The head of the Mendoza DGE, Jaime Correas, said that “it is a huge pride that an international organization such as the United Nations has recognized the work of the school government.”

“From a global perspective it puts us at the forefront of issues so important for the whole region and from the particular point of view it allows us to work at a very early age issues related to our particular environment in Mendoza, such as earthquakes, drought, zonal wind or hail,” stressed the official.
From the DGE highlighted the Directorate of Evaluation and Planning of Educational Quality has been working for a year on the new curriculum design for primary school that will be implemented in the 2020 school cycle, with the incorporation of topics that emerged so far this century or the that are addressed from different areas.
