The Minister of Education of the Basque Government, Jokin Bildarratzhas expressed concern about the ministry’s “precipitation” when presenting its University entrance exam proposal to the autonomous communities.

The Basque government has said in a statement that during his speech at the sectoral conference, the counsel expressed concern about “the haste” with which the state administration intends to tackle an issue “of such important importance”. without prior passage by the Education Committee “for a necessary reflection, diagnosis and sharing”.

Jokin Bildarratz recalled that at the moment all teaching staff are “out of the centers after an intensive year in the classroom”, stressing that Euskadi has “invested many months in preparing the curriculum, which will come into effect this next year .” academic year 2022-2023″.

For this reason, he does not understand “the speed” of the ministry when it comes to presenting his proposal, as he believes it could wait until September. also missed “a bilateral and earlier contact” with the Ministry of Education of the Basque Government, before being presented at the sectoral conference.

However, he has his “concern” for respect for the competence of the Basque Country in the field of education “or for the homogenizing will that can be felt in the first proposal of the Ministry”.

The Basque Ministry of Education also believes that “by definition, any evaluation must respect the idiosyncrasy of the context to be evaluated and of the place where it is carried out”.

Jokin Bildarratz recalled that the new baccalaureate curriculum will be introduced in September and that, before any changes are made, “it is necessary to give the centers time to adapt their curriculum projects”.
