Students mobilized against advances from High Council of UBA
City of Buenos Aires, September 22, 2010
Approximately 500 people, including students, teachers and workers marched to the headquarters of the High Council of the UBA against a high draft by the Committee on Interpretation and Regulation that “goes against the will of the educational community.”
Speaking to Time 24, Julian Jaraj, member of the Students Center of Colegio Nacional Buenos Aires (CENBA), explained that, “this march is to let the High Council know that there is a willingness of the school community and that it should be respected.”
In addition, the representative stated that, “the Resolutory Council of the CNBA passed a project that calls for direct elections with weighted voting for the next authority of the institution, but what the High Council wants to approve will deny this completely.”
This bill alluded by the student purposes an election between all education projects (which explains the educational and administrative methodology followed by the candidate) on which the teachers, students, graduates and workers will vote.
After the vote, the Resolutory Council (co-governing body of the school) will raise the results to the rector of the UBA, Ruben Hallú, who must designate the winner as the new rector of the Colegio Nacional Buenos Aires.
The project has already approved by the High Council dismisses the decision of the CNBA and orders its Council to raise a three names list to Hallú to decide who will be the new principal of the college.
