EL BACHILLERATO EN LA UNIVERSIDAD

Tuve la fortuna de dirigir la educación media superior de la Universidad de Colima entre 1997 y 2004, en el periodo rectoral de Carlos Salazar Silva. Durante ese lapso desarrollamos un proyecto llamado “Reforma Académica del Bachillerato” (RAB), cuyo desenlace fue satisfactorio, aunque no se cumplieran todas las grandes metas. En el balance final los progresos fueron enormes.

Gracias al trabajo colectivo realizado la Universidad se convirtió en un punto de referencia nacional. Entre otros, algunos hechos lo atestiguan: nuestro liderazgo durante cinco años entre las universidades públicas con bachillerato, incluidas la UNAM, la UdeG o la UANL; la evaluación (y los recursos) en el primer programa público de financiamiento a la educación media superior; la coordinación del capítulo para el programa educativo nacional 2001-2006 y mi designación como asesor de la SEP en la Dirección General del Bachillerato.

Los ciclos terminan, y con la salida de Carlos Salazar Silva ocupé otras responsabilidades. Del periodo siguiente podría hacer algunos juicios sobre el rumbo del bachillerato universitario, porque me sobran información y argumentos, pero no me corresponde juzgarlo.

Con el rectorado en curso comparto personalmente algunas ideas sobre el destino que imprime a la media superior. Un análisis informado encontraría líneas de continuidad entre aquella reforma y la actual gestión: el bachillerato bilingüe era una de las metas de nuestra RAB, pero no fue posible porque en aquel momento no reuníamos el número de maestros que pudieran impartir los cursos de matemáticas, física o historia (por decir algunas materias) en inglés. Lo dejamos a un lado y hoy se retoma. Lo celebro.

También aplaudo la revitalización de las academias de maestros. Por otro lado, la flexibilización empezó a concretarse con el modelo del bachillerato semiescolarizado, que ahora cumple 15 años; pero pretendíamos y discutimos más opciones, que también ahora se afirman, como los cursos impartidos en periodos intersemestrales para que estudiantes en condiciones favorables puedan avanzar y concluir antes de los tres años.

En fin, estas son algunas de las medidas que hoy están en marcha y eran parte de las estrategias y metas de la RAB.

Hay que repetirlo con vehemencia: cualquier transformación sustancial en la Universidad de Colima debe comenzar en sus bachilleratos, por el peso de su matrícula y por la importancia numérica de sus egresados en la conformación de la matrícula de primer ingreso en licenciatura. Mejorar cualitativamente el bachillerato de la Universidad de Colima es, entonces, condición indispensable para su renovación.

    1. I think that restructuring high schools is very important because in professional schools they represent the raw materials.

    2. A bilingual high school is what we need to learn to speak English in a competitive world.

    3. I don’t believe we can be very successful because most teachers cannot even speak English, much less teach classes in English dedicated to course content.

    1.- The ideas put forward were very good, and I think it’s great that are being met.
    2.- En mi caso que estudie en una preparatoria semi escolarizada pienso que tiene algo positivo y algo negativo.
    3.- POSITIVE: It gives people time to study and work at the same time.
    4.- NEGATIVE: Not the same quality of study, since there are sometimes the subject in depth.

    1.-It seems very good idea of what intersemestrales periods.
    2.-The problem of wanting to do a bilingual school is that not every teacher can give their classes in English.
    3.-The support you give to students with their articles is welcome.
    4.-Good article.

  11. 1K Luis Armando Covarrubias Rincon dice:

    1.-Would be an excellent idea of high school bilingual, but must take into account that the level of English in lower grades is very poor and it would cost to make students to adapt is
    2.-would be a great change
    3.-I believe that some of these ideas should be implemented from lower levels
    4.-Who teaches the classes is a point that you should consider

    1. It is best that were given with great impact, however critical the way bilingual proposal, because although the company is unable to assume responsibility for their own language, it was hoped that that idea remained like that It is now day, an idea.
    2. The capabilities of different types of teachers are measured by their knowledge, I think it’s more important how the teacher can impregnate that knowledge in the student.
    3. While semiescolarizado school was a good way to study while working, well at least I defend that was part of that school model, adapting to the University of Colima has been difficult for me, because it is not the same quality of teaching, without belittling the great teachers who taught me materials, is still problematic we need more progress in the field of education and less to celebrate.
    4. Favoresco indudablamente the ezfuersos few do for education, I think that should be more grants and fewer students leaving university.
