The itineraries for reunification organized by the National Commission for Continuous Education Improvement (MEJOREDU) confirmed that the Ministry of Public Education (SEP) I will work to sow an attitude and discipline that is based on taking care of the others by using the mandatory mouth mask.

Learning to wear the face mask should not be “I use it to protect myself” but to protect others, so the SEP will be very careful in the New Normal protocol for going back to school, he said.

He commented that in order to support teachers, particularly those at risk, an agreement was signed with the State Security and Social Services Institute (ISSSTE) to promote their access to health and medical care.

Moctezuma Barragán explained that primary school students will start school activity with a support course that enables diagnostic levels to be personalized in a way that assesses performance levels and possible learning delays with a minimum of three weeks.
