After three years through the coronavirus pandemic,
this week thousands of students will return to class, beginning the 2023 school year
The start will take place this
in the City of Buenos Aires and six provinces:
Salta, Entre Ríos, San Luis, Mendoza, Santa Cruz and Formosa
In other districts, the start will be between Tuesday and Friday, due to differences in the school calendar and union conflicts.
Many schools open with a certainty:
the goal of 190 days of schooling that was set as an objective
could only be met in six jurisdictions
of the country.
This is an objective set in October 2021 by Minister Jaime Perczyk, who stressed his idea of "prioritizing learning affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and the recovery of school times".
But only the City and Province of Buenos Aires will be able to reach it, which planned 192 school days in its 2023 calendar, and Chaco, Córdoba, Misiones and Neuquén have a 190-day school cycle planned.
In the other 18 provinces, the commitment made by the Federal Education Council (CFE) to recover the learning lost during the pandemic will not be fulfilled.
Likewise, within the framework of the return to school, the national authorities announced that schools throughout the country will promote "pedagogical content to commemorate throughout the 2023 school year the 40 years of democracy in Argentina."
As reported in the resolution of the Federal Education Council (CEF), the actions to commemorate it will be carried out taking some key dates such as March 24, April 2, May 25, October 30, December 10, among others. .

Santa Cruz will also end its school year that day, although with a cutoff in the middle of the year between July 17 and 28.
In Río Negro, classes will not start tomorrow as planned because the Union of Education Workers of Río Negro (Unter) decided on a 72-hour strike after rejecting the "salary proposal" for 2023 from the provincial government.
The 822,461 students in Córdoba will start classes on Tuesday and not tomorrow as a result of a strike and mobilization called by the Union of Educators of the Province of Córdoba (UEPC) to demand "fair wages."
In any case, in the mountainous province many have already started: those who begin the first course of the primary and secondary levels returned to the classrooms on February 23 and 24 for an adaptation period.
In Chubut, for its part, the Association of Education Workers of Chubut (Atech) announced a 24-hour strike on Monday to demand "salary recomposition."
Classes in that province will conclude on December 21 and the winter recess will be from December 17 to 28.
Corrientes will start the school period on Tuesday, February 28 and will end on December 22, while the winter holidays will be from July 10 to 21.
In the province of Santa Fe, they will begin on Friday, March 3, since the Santa Fe Teachers' Association (Amsafe) and Sadop, which represents private schools, declared the "no start of classes" for March 1 and 2 in rejection of the parity proposal.
In the latter province, classes are expected to end on December 22, and winter holidays will take place between July 17 and 28.
