The pandemic has led us to get used to a “new normal” worldwide. In this reality, virtual classes were an ally for schools and educational institutions. Parents have also looked for cheaper ways to raise their children.
From the conversion of their children to cheaper schools to admission to public schools, parents in Mexico had to readjust themselves. In this context, many representatives who want to pay for the feedback in advance have had to withdraw their children from these schools.
In an interview with Milenio Ricardo Sheffield Padilla, The head of the federal consumer prosecutor’s office (Profeco) said that institutions that do not want to send the re-registration back to parents who request it could be fined up to 3 million pesos.
He also noted that the complaints have so far been very low, as the parents are able to reach an agreement in most schools. The official added that it is illogical that schools intend to charge the same for their online classes. It is therefore understandable that parents look for other options.
