whose educational trajectories have been affected by the pandemic

and ensure their permanence in the educational system."

With that goal, they added, more than

$ 2 billion

"This program promotes the presence of the school in the community by deploying different initiatives through articulated work between state spaces or civil society organizations at all educational levels. In this way

, real opportunities are generated for all students of the country,

As detailed by the Ministry, the program has more than

10,900 teachers

"The Comprehensive Approach Plan has four lines of action: accompaniment to educational trajectories, school reengagement, permanence in schooling at compulsory levels and graduation from the level studied," they pointed out from the educational portfolio.

450,000 high school students had had no or insufficient school participation

, of which 190,000 had no contact with the school.

"We define the program politically and pedagogically as closeness, because what must happen within the framework of Accompany is a very careful and laborious pedagogical work. Now, what we have ahead of us is to deepen the actions that are underway to advance in a more precise characterization of the population that, within this universe, needs greater accompaniment as singularities, "said the Secretary of Education, Marisa Díaz.
