Víctor Hugo Cárdenas, Minister of Education for the self-proclaimed President of Bolivia, Jeanine Áñez, has assured that during the government of Evo Morales and the Movement for Socialism (MAS), schools “indoctrinated” and “taught” socialism, Marxism and Shenanigans “”

“Now that I have the documents in the ministry, the normal schools have formed socialists and Marxists. The ministry of education has been a center of indoctrination, and therefore it has withdrawn enormously,” he said in statements to state television.

Socialism and Marxism were taught in more than 70 percent of higher normal schools and less than 30 percent of pedagogical and didactic training. For this reason, it has called for the “180-degree turn” to education as part of a democratic project and education that gives priority to the development of intelligence.
