National Polytechnic Institute has always been part of the SEP: Nuño Mayer

Changes in the IPN's structure do not separate it from the Public Education Secretariat

MEXICO CITY – Public Education Secretary Aurelio Nuño Mayer called on the entire polytechnic community, especially students, to not be misled by information about alleged changes in the structure and legislation of the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN).

He asked that the confusion is not older and that to clarify what is needed to clarify at the IPN, which has always been part of the Public Education Secretariat (SEP).

Inaugurating the XLVI Ordinary Session of the Council of Public Universities and Related Institutions (CUPIA), the official explained that recently it was decided that IPN cease to belong to the Higher Secondary Education Undersecretariat and be directly attached to the head office of the SEP.

The purpose of this decision is to create a direct and unmediated relationship between the institution and SEP, Nuño Mayer said during a ceremony held at the general rectory of the Autonomous Metropolitan University (UAM).

“But under no circumstances does that imply any change in the internal organization of the Polytechnic,” he said.

Nuño Mayer said that since the National Polytechnic Institute was founded in 1936 by former president Lázaro Cárdenas, it has been part of the secretariat at all levels.

“The IPN, as it has been since its foundation is part of the SEP as a decentralized body since 1981, on the condition that remains under the Organic Act, passed that year,” he said.

“That does not change, nor will it change, as neither will any of the internal organization of its institutes, schools and of course, none of the labor rights of its workers,” he added. “Its condition is and will remain the same since its foundation.”
