New changes in high schools for the 2011-2012 school year

New transformations will take place in the high schools of the whole country in the 2011-2012 school year. Until last June, there was a professor for all subjects and this person had to be able of teaching almost 10 different subjects, beyond her or his major.

In that sense, the coming school year will be very different, said Silvia Torres Víctor, Acting Director of Education in Santa Cruz del Sur. Teachers will start giving just two subjects located in the same distinction between sciences and humanities, therefore students wont be with the general integral professor no longer.

The change of concept of the General Integral Professor in high school for the teacher with double major in related subjects: biology and chemistry, maths and physics, biology and geography, history and civic education, will allow teachers to give classes on the subjects they majored. English, Spanish and physical education teachers will only give those subjects. (Yamile Agrenot Castillo/ Radio Santa Cruz)
