The Secretariat of Public Education (SEP) is less than a month away from presenting its first proposal for the modification of curricula, as part of the Escuela al Centro plan.The new curricula will are expected to go into effect in the 2017-2018 school year, but may go into effect in the 2018-2019 school year, which will be the last school year to begin during the administration of Enrique Peña Nieto.Secretary of Education Aurelio Nuño Mayer explained, “we will start with an open consultation and take into account the information we receive. Then, we will consult experts, local authorities, etc., and incorporate the opinions we consider adequate into our plans. Finally, we will develop and release the plans and programs for the new curricula.”The proposal that will be presented in April will be finished but not definitive. After the presentation, there will be forums, which will last one or two months, with pedagogues, experts, local authorities, teachers, legislative representatives and civil society organizations.“Once we present the curricular plans, I will convene commissions to write new textbooks based on the new curricula,” said Nuño Mayer. “The process may take a long time, because the textbooks need to be high quality.”Nuño added that he hopes the new curriculum plans will incorporate the values or liberty, diversity, democracy, respect and the rule of law. He first announced plans for the curricular changes in November 2015.
