The new materials include robotics and programming, Sánchez announced in the State of the Union debate
MADRID, August 11 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The President of the National Association of Book and Teaching Material Publishers (ANELE), José Moyano, has assured that the new textbooks, adapted to the curricula approved by the government and the autonomous communities in the development of LOMLOE, will be ready for the start of the school year, although more than half of the royal autonomous decrees have yet to be published.
“Without a doubt, the books will be ready, they are practically available to the teachers, the books are available,” ANELE’s President told Europa Press.
However, the association warns that according to its updated data of August 5, a total of twelve autonomous communities have not yet published the decrees of the curricula of all their levels of education.
In particular, they have not yet published the decrees of the four stages of Andalusia, Asturias, the Canary Islands, Castile and León, Catalonia, the Valencian Community, Galicia, Murcia and the Basque Country.
In addition, Aragón has not published the ESO and Baccalaureate decrees, as well as Extremadura; and Navarra has yet to publish the baccalaureate syllabus.
“The books are available but we have to go through a filter and out of the 72 decrees that have to be published only about 30 are published today and for security reasons we are waiting for their publication but we have the drafts and the books are available Moyano pointed out, stressing that the syllabus part of the decrees “usually does not contain any changes”.
In this sense, the President of ANELE has indicated that it is possible that the course “starts with many communities without having published their doctrinal decrees”, which he considers “quite irregular”. “But hey, it’s what we have, we play by the regulations. We have to wait for the decrees to be published, we have sent samples to the community centers until they are finally approved,” he added.
ANDALUCIA AND MURCIA, WITH OLD BOOKS
Although the new books will be available, the federation has indicated that Andalusia will not renew the books and the Murcia region will only change the first and third primary schools. The new curricula will be implemented in odd-numbered years next year as part of the development of LOMLOE.
The association has explained that the preservation of the old books in these communities has to do with the budget they have for their free lending programs. Thus, ANELE has clarified that in Andalusia the budget for this year has not been approved and that in Murcia the budget allocation for which they were counted has not been increased.
Although in June the Autonomous Community of Madrid recommended that the training centers keep the textbooks for the next course, the community led by Isabel Díaz Ayuso will finally use the new books. “There will be no problems in Madrid,” assured the President of ANELE.
As for the possibility that the “doctrine and ideology” might be in the new books, Moyano pointed out how the Madrid community warned that it was “puzzling” because they felt that “they were involved with the editing.” messing around” when they “complied” with the norm”.
“In a democratic country, if a royal decree is approved, if you disagree, you have to express that in the education sector, we strictly follow the law, and they had to resort to the ministry royal decree if they did do not agree with the content. Ayuso went through three cities and then he realized it,” he said.
“IT TAKES TIME” TO INTRODUCE PROGRAMMING AND ROBOTICS TO THE BOOKS
Referring to the government’s approved School Code Program 4.0 last month to incorporate programming and robotics into early childhood, elementary and secondary education, Moyano has confirmed that “there has been time” to introduce the new subjects into textbooks. “There has been time to introduce it because it is a subject that was previously treated as optional in some autonomous communities,” he said.
This program envisages the implementation of coding assistants in classrooms to support the teacher in the toddler and elementary school classrooms starting in September and in the 2023-2024 academic year in ESO.
The plan envisages an investment of 356 million euros over the next two years, which does not need to be approved by an extraordinary loan, since funds are available in the ministerial post and will affect 3.9 million pupils in the second cycle of young children next year and 5.8 the following if those are picked up by ESO.
