Cinismos vemos…

La publicación de un reporte sobre la educación media superior mexicana que, entre paréntesis, no dice nada que no sepamos, generó una reacción oficial rayana entre el cinismo y la genuina ignorancia, que por genuina no deja de ser irresponsable y, por ignorante, de no deja de ser condenable. Del cinismo ya cada uno saque conclusiones.

El reporte que, puestos a dudar, pudo no leer el subsecretario de Educación Media Superior antes de descalificarlo, expresa verdades viejas, y eso que, hay que decirlo, no fue redactado por intrigosos movimientos o intelectuales de izquierda, sino por el Instituto Nacional para la Evaluación de la Educación.

El subsecretario, da lo mismo si se apellida Martínez o González, dijo: no es cierto que millones de jóvenes estén marginados de la vida. No hay que ser pesimistas, alentó. Y sus argumentos, rebosando inteligencia, deslumbran: no son 20 millones, dijo, son 19 millones y 275 mil jóvenes entre 15 y 19 años. No están marginados de la vida por no haber estudiado, dijo, sólo verán disminuidas sus expectativas. No están condenados a la marginalidad, pues para ellos habrá empleos en el subempleo, en el comercio informal, en la precariedad, en la ausencia de prestaciones laborales…

Están condenados a exclusión social, pero siguen vivos. No seamos pesimistas, es la invitación. Sólo le faltó agregar que los mexicanos somos grandes, fuertes y sobreviviremos, que esos 20 millones, que no son 20 millones, probarán la fortaleza de nuestra economía y la templanza de nuestro espíritu.

    Que el señor le deje el puesto a alguno de los citados 19 millones Y 275 mil jóvenes para que se vaya a SOBREVIVIR en la marginación. Total no hay que ser pesimistas y siempre habrá chambitas con las que se pueda mantener.

  2. Arthur Edwards dice:

    La marginalización no duele al que mañosamente reporta o reparta, sino al que lo sufre. Este discurso para mi demuesta el vado entre los que tienen y los que sufren. Quisiera que ella sufriera “disminuidas expectativas” por un rato para que tuviera el corazón para reportar la verdad…sin pelos en la lengua!

    Cuando el problema se te por fuera o no se vive en carne propia las personas fácilmente se expresan de está manera, estoy segura que sí está persona vive un poco la vida de alguna de estas personas no se expresaría así.

  4. balvanero dice:

    Realmente indignantes las declaraciones del subsecretario; no se puede esperar mucho de dirigentes de esa estatura y estreches de miras, lo preocupante es que está en el lugar donde se establecen las políticas educativas…

  5. Silvia Cano García dice:

    yo me pregunto, Quien o Quienes son los responsables de los 20 millones de jovenes entre 15 y 19 años mexicanos marginados ? jovénes de hoy en la historia,cumpre de todas las épocas. en mi opinion todos nuestros jovenes debieran de ser la generacion mas prometedora, si se les mostrara el camino TODOS los jovenes son capaces.
    pero quien no les esta mostrandoles el camino a estos jovenes en su Hogar?, en la escuela ?,

  7. Adrian Alejandro Vizcaino Martinez 1-B dice:

    Cinicism is the perfec word for the subsecretary’s argument, what else can we say to this useless country? ( 15 pesos for a lunch ) It seems imposible to create 10millions of little jobs in our contry.

      perfect, million, country

      Adrian, good English! I agree with you on most points. However, remember that your country is NOT useless. Love your country; it is better than most! Many functionaries may be useless, but try to separate the people, problems and your country. I LOVE MEXICO!

  8. Rommel Salvador Juárez Rodríguez 1 B dice:

    Mexico Can’t be worse politically and economically. and can’t generate many jobs, or give solutions to economic problems.
    Or tell me, there are many jobs to give work to 20 millions of people?

      Rommel,

      Mexico can’t be worse politically and economically and can’t generate many jobs or give solutions to economic problems.
      Or tell me, are there many jobs to give work to 20 millions of people?

      because you ask a question, you must write “are there” instead of “there are”

      Good comments!

  9. Irving De La Mora 1B dice:

    Expectations as they have almost politicians and officials are not achieved with studies, as my professor Arthur said; they lower their expectations, just to realize that right to life is expensive. But all they need workers to keep them at a lower level.

  10. Pedro Madrigal Velasco B dice:

    go that yes it is cynisim since that is single play with numbers, and because to say, if we remember to that the rector to the colima university say, that era, if more no remember,;” the colima university agree to 70% to the enrollment school”,but good that 70% belong in percentage to 80% that terminate the secondary, then to these people that mentioned, it is forget add the yougn that is suicide,due to that not terminate the bachillerato and not know thet have to it live, this time i am completely the agreement, and their publication encourage to become more critical to the society and policy mexican tha to speak true this to cry and i see and just i have 17 years and not all see

    • Pedro, me alegra que el artículo que leíste te ayude a ser más crítico. Un ciudadano responsable no puede ser pasivo ni acrítico, y tú tienes 17 años, una vida por delante que necesitamos que sea la de un ciudadano comprometido y preparado.

      Saludos!

  16. Manuela Rodriguez Niebla 1B dice:

    So, Mr. pretend these young go on without study, what working stone crusher lifetime, or what is worse denying them the right to the education. And still guilt to the young.

  17. Christian Omar De La Mora Retano - 1D dice:

    It’s a shame that people with a high position speaks so blatantly, saying that many teenagers don’t have the same opportunities that others but They will have an underemployment of employment, some people can’t be worse like this one.

  18. Juan Pedro Tintos Mendoza 1 B dice:

    please somebody tell Mr.overqualified who says that 20 million young people between 15 and 19 years old are not appart of the work life just because they are in margination, obviously they are, but not everythig is their fault, goubernment has a lot of fault in that, so please don´t say that they just have less oportunities than the others, actually, they have no oportunities before others, they have no preparation.

    • Juan Pedro, la pregunta es si nosotros, los ciudadanos, ustedes los estudiantes, nosotros los profesores estamos cumpliendo nuestra labor con el nivel de responsabilidad que se requiere.

      Gracias por tu comentario.

      • Juan Pedro Tintos Mendoza 1 B dice:

        asi es Sr. Juan Carlos, creo que esa es la pregunta del millon, ¿De verdad nosotros estamos haciendo nuestra parte para contribuir al desarrollo de este país, de verdad merecemos el lugar que estamos ocupando en la universidad, de verdad cada uno de nosotros en sociedad esta desempeñando de forma debida el papel que le corresponde? esa es realmente nuestra OBLIGACION, hasta entonces tendremos el derecho de reclamar algo que nos corresponde, como lo es el derecho a estudiar, pero mientras no hagamos nuestra parte, no tenemos nada que pedir, lo malo en esto es que quizá muchos de esos jovenes marginados si esten dispuestos a cumplir con ese roll y muchos de nosotros que kizá no lo estemos, estamos ocupando un lugar aqui que no nos corresponde. Tiene mucha razon Sr. Juan Carlos, HAGAMOS NUESTRA PARTE.

  19. Alan Rair Guzman Delgado dice:

    i agree, this is outrageous and pure conformism, cynicism.
    It supposed he, at least, give an idea of how solve this problem (i think).

    well, like i said before, the country needs people with values, not super intelligent subsecretaries, i’m just saying… jeje

  20. aldo david hernandez castañeda dice:

  21. Ismael Perez Avalos 1B dice:

    It`s true that most of those 20 million people are going to work in something but what can they expect, is not bad don’t having a career it doesn’t make people more or less, but is not the best scenario for a country especially if 20 million young people that they should be in the schools are out in the streets trying to work in something to survive, yes sadly most of their jobs will only give them the basics to survive.

  22. Javier Alexis Cernas Avalos 1°D dice:

    Instead of watch if the numbers are right or not, the sir “subsecretario” of education should try to get education of quality for all mexican young, ’cause this is only way that México can be a better country…

  23. osdy gersaid fletes arreola 1 "A" dice:

    1.- For something so mexico don’t progress.

    2.-The cinism its never have in the midle education.

    3.- The students for declaration for this dont studing.

  24. Maribel Peralta Larios 1°d dice:

    It is not cynicism that is to have no shame, if, that, think of her undersecretary of education who is waiting for us to the most we are talking about the serious problem of incomprehension and ignorance that has our civil serves public on this matter education.

  25. angel alejandro ureña gomez 1 A dice:

    Always those people are upper class, and apparently they forget that Mexico is composed of the lower class, it is absurd to speak of a good job, when 3.7 million unemployed in Mexico, and even more say that for everyone there jobs. speaking of absurd things he could give a lesson in absurdity. Again we see that politicians are far from the people.

  27. Roberto Quintero (Alumno del Profe Edwards) 1-D dice:

    Its true that most of students prefer to work than study.

    Mexico doesn’t have a good economy,thats why alot of people don’t have jobs and live in marginality!

    The politicians always promise good for the people in need and fail.They dont help them and thast why they live in this way.

    We need to do something to improve our country,because the economy gets every day worst.

  28. ramon francisco martinez velazquez 1D dice:

  29. axel jefte orozco 1 B dice:

    this is the only problem with mexico people dont continue studying because of their economic problems but if there was a way to change it I think that there would be a chance that mexico would be above any other country in any type of academic competition.

  30. Miguel rosales ochoa 1A dice:

    Do something to finalize the problems and not repeat.

    Help to the of scores recourses and not let to its destiny.

    Orient to those 20 million that equal to the us are Mexican.

    The most of the people always think in us and not in the that read support.

  32. Ernesto Alcaraz Andrade 1*D dice:

    sometimes i can’t believe the cynicism whit our leaders talk about the problems than attack our society but then i remember than we are in mexico.

    with 19 years old when i hear this kind of words from the person than should do something for fix the problem ,i ask my self if we like mexico have the possibility to change?

    i realy hope than the answer for this will be yes, but only the time an the hard work wiil do this situation true.

  33. Jose Carlos Hernandez Hernandez 1°B dice:

    i in diference of you im in the other part, i support to the sub-secretary in a part of he said, because all the students have the opportunity of join wherever they want, or is it false?.
    so, depends of the student if he really wantted give the best o just did it for pass the class. and that one student hasnt been in, will do that he’ll think that the life is not only life, we have to give the best if we want get something good.
    there are the opportunities and depends of you get in or transform yourself in a victim

  34. Jonathan Andres Llamas Cruz dice:

    You are right about your words, Politic people while they are advancing on the power, they think they need more
    people to work for them, then, people who has a carrer convert to that underemployeds who don’t has the same
    posibilities as another with a higher rank just for politic stuff, and still, this people use their maxium effort to
    support a family and go ahead with their life, it is not necesary that they send their children to work, instead that
    they should study and intent to make changes in the politic.

  35. Luis Antonio Narajo Mora 1B dice:

    In my point of view, we the mexicans should not think as conformist. Neither disguise the true with “pretty words”. we should take actions, for our country is in constantly evolving.

  36. The young people that supposed that will be the future of this country, and most of them are not studying that is really dissapoint, whatever reason , but this country if want to get better need to get educated to make better human beings and better citizens that been consciuos and reponsibles of his actions.

  37. Alejandro Gilberto Heredia Morán 1° B dice:

    Yes, the mexican spirit is strong and capable of doing amazing things, but everyone need help, even a little; and that youngs, who could help them?, whom without look at his own position would look at them and cheer them to continue, to superate themselves , that amounts are to get worry, but more than that, they are to get working since now.

  38. Maria Lizbeth Ochoa Sarmienta 1B dice:

    All the politicians are the same they are unfulfilled and are cynical, while they enjoy of the money they are keeping from the community ,They do not care about the future of Mexico, young people are the future of this country but many them are not getting the education they need that’s why Mexico will always stay the same if we do not do something about it.

  39. José Carlos Llerenas Montes 1-A dice:

    What the sub secretary did is just soften the contundent data of publication mentioned.
    He did want show the side “not so bad” of the news and show the opportunities that still have these young.
    But I think we can reduce that number with the appropiate programs that can offer, for example the scholarships.
    When necessary measures are taken then don’t will need to soften the news of this kind.

  40. enrique madrigal diaz 1-a dice:

    easy to explain away on problem
    that solution to remedy

    • La solución a los problemas en educación no puede provenir de una mente maravillosa, súper dotada, ni ser producto de una imposición. La educación es una tarea social y su mejora es, siempre, tarea colectiva, de los padres, maestros, directores, políticos, gobernantes, estudiantes. No hacerlo de esa forma difícilmente revertirá problemas.

      Gracias por tu comentario.

  41. Francisco Javier Chan Ramirez 1°B dice:

    The statements of the undersecretary were poor. I think, he doesn’t have an idea what he is saying because he interprets only statistics. However, if he were a noble person, may be, he can avoid poor percentages and striking statistic.

  42. Jose Antonio Aguiar Palacios 1A dice:

    THE education in mexico always be hidden for all the people!!! they always going to repeat the same them know and always they going to laught of us in our faces they are thinking that we don’t know what´s happening right now

    All that the goberment said about our country of the education is just for no see them like the bad guys, because the truth is other, we need to work hard for the future of our country,not just leave that the goberment do everything, we need to put some of our part.

  45. salvador hernandez francisco 1 A dice:

    utilis there if that is the saying or comments do nothing but cover the eye pa only with respect to the male, too much ablamos say much, but always remains dever much. aido informal work now still growing substantially each one is fixed as i can on what you want or as if only now being reborn mexico change ….?

  46. Eduardo Valentín Hernández Aguilar 1-B dice:

    In my opinion the secretary’s comment is the total cynicism in the extension of the word. if marginalization does not mean deprive certain things and opportunities to people, then maybe he can tell us what is the true meaning of marginalization. i agree with some people, maybe he have to leave his job, now at days society does not need such kind of people.

  47. Rubén Ricardo Trujillo García 1 A dice:

    Us says that worse not can the country according to the form that is this driving the education and the economy to the level top, not can be possible that has so student but it that not to see is as find work the 20 million that are taking.

  48. Ivan Alejandro Vega Flores 1º A dice:

    Unfortunately, the great majority of those 20 millions in fact prefer to work, because, in my opinion, could be more tempting the chance of get spending money that study and prepare to work in a job with higher income. “It’s easier work and gets fast money to effort and study a career”, since this last option, unfortunately, doesn’t guarantee a job and a fixed income.

  49. This is cynisism. The under secretary has not experienced the situation marginal and is easy for he say or think.

  50. Julio Daniel ROdriguez Puga 1 A dice:

    The ignrance of ours owns mandatary do own Mexico more ignorant, but the true is more tan evident, we to prefer ignoring, because reality ¿how don´t know which do in the country today in day?, just we to ignore this, but the severe reality we living in a Mexico mediocre.

      Edgar

      Many young people prefer working than studying. That is because they can’t deal with their studies. To keep moving forward, they need to overcome.

  54. miguel leon bautista 1º "a" dice:

    i do not why people always talk without know really it what be going.

    the young really leave the study by the job.

    and yes many existing young are within marginalization.

    by that I think this is not the true roblem.

    • Arthur Edwards dice:

      Miguel,

      I do not know why people always talk without knowing really whatn is going on.
      Young people really leave study to get jobs,
      and yes many existing youths are marginalized.
      I think this is not the true roblem.

      Your opinion is respectable but I can’t agree. This is a corrected version so please check it!

  55. Many youngs prefer work than study sometimes fear the study, sometimes that to conform little money, that not reached to feed a family..

    • Arthur Edwards dice:

      Alan,

      Many youths prefer working than studying sometimes because they fear studying. Sometimes they conform with little money, thatis not enough to feed a family.

      Check corrections

      I agree some people don’t want to study and there is acorrelation between salary and educational level!
