Education in Peru is still under debate, this time around the educational materials received by minors in regular basic education. The presence of the gender approach has aroused the discomfort of various groups that, through a law, seek to participate in the development of publications that will reach the hands of students. On the measure approved in Congress, Jose Cueto from People’s Renewal showed his support.
The parliamentarian regretted that the texts had been prepared by an NGO, which he described as “pro gender ideology, pro LGBTI and pro abortion”. Cueto assured that the way sexual issues have been presented has been wrong. “Enter the link that appears there and you get a porn page. explicit sex”said on Channel N to later recall that the former Minister of Education Flor Pablo was criticized for the appearance of a questionable link in school textbooks.
For the member of Renovación Popular, the fathers and mothers must participate in the edition of the texts. “Parents have to be in control of that. That has been said all my life.”. In addition, he stressed that the material currently used does not take parents into account when resolving doubts or problems that occur at school. “The teacher should take the girl or boy to a private place and tell her how to act. Nowhere does she say to mention the parents”, he said it is pointed out in the manuals given to the teachers.
“Comprehensive sex education is a disgrace”Cueto added to later point out that this type of information should be taught with the parents next to the student. “I do not agree that only experts teach,” he said, later denouncing that teachers are indoctrinated to teach without the participation of the parents of the students.
Cueto also regretted that in the published texts Miguel Grau appears together with a figure he described as a terrorist. When asked who he was referring to, he said: “There are the names. I don’t remember. At least accused of terrorism.” “Most of the caviars do not say that there was no terrorism in Peru. They call them social fighters. I have spent 40 years of my life, 20 of which I have been in an emergency zone. I have seen how these cursed people killed. How can you not teach that part of the story to your children?he added.
With the support of the Fuerza Popular, Alianzas para el Progreso, Avanza País, Renovación Popular, Acción Popular and Perú Libre groups, Bill 094 was approved, which “promotes the quality of educational materials and resources in Peru”. This initiative indicates that the Ministry of Education must guarantee that educational materials “are consistent with the principles of Peruvian education” and encourage the participation of parents in their preparation.
“Education should not be a means to promote any type of social or political ideology, even less of those practices that can configure a crime sanctioned by the moral and by the Peruvian Penal Code, as is the case of terrorism and related criminal types” reads in the text approved by the majority of the national representation.
Materials from the areas of Personal Social, Personal Development, Citizenship and Civics, Social Studies, World Discovery, and Science and Technology will be subject to review. of “representatives of Parents’ Associations, civil associations constituted and registered in the public registry or other representative instances constituted to participate in the educational process of their children.”
