The Department of Education considers that the measures aimed at improving the level of reading comprehension and mathematics competence of students are “welcome” and that they work along those lines, but they have pointed out that the announcement by the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, of a reinforcement plan “arrives late” and is “a consequence of its own legislation, the Lomloe, which is proving to be a real failure.” Sources from the Ministry have indicated that in the Valencian Community the course has already begun with a reinforcement of the subject of mathematics, foreign language and reading reinforcement workshops when the current Government recovered the two teaching hours that the previous PSPV government , Compromís and Podem had reduced in 1st, 2nd and 3rd of ESO. “What Sánchez is doing is repeating the history of the PSOE, which already amended its 2006 LOE and modified it in 2010 with the Sustainable Economy Law,” the same sources have pointed out. The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, announced this Sunday a reinforcement plan in mathematics and reading comprehension for the next General State Budgets that will affect nearly five million students. Sánchez introduced this educational plan “in light of the OECD reports” in reference to the PISA report that reflected a decline in the results of Spanish students. “Despite the efforts of young people, our students, also teachers and families, there are subjects that are hard for our young people. I am referring to mathematics and also reading comprehension,” he said.
