The Inadi joins the official attack against the Minister of Education of Horacio Rodríguez Larreta

The National Institute against Discrimination, Xenophobia and Racism (Inadi) issued this Thursday a harsh statement against the Minister of Education of the City of Buenos Aires, Soledad Acuña, which joined the onslaught of the ruling party after it publicly criticized the lack of official data on students who dropped out of school due to the Covid-19 pandemic “Today is too late to go looking for him because they are probably already lost in the corridor of a villa or they fell into drug trafficking activities.”

“The statements of the Buenos Aires minister demonstrate, instead, her elitist ideological prejudices and contempt for public affairs in general, a personal bias that she has expressed on other occasions and that is shared by her political environment,” Inadi attacked. And he added: “It implies serious institutional damage that Minister Soledad Acuña has addressed in a discriminatory manner the population receiving her policies. Even more so in the case of minors from historically vulnerable groups, who in recent years also had to suffer the effects of a pandemic.”

The agency maintained that with these public demonstrations Acuña “they disregard their obligations as an official” and that discriminated by “holding the vulnerable groups responsible for their situation and making unfounded and stigmatizing associations in terms of childhood, crime, poverty and public education.”

“The impact of the pandemic unleashed an unprecedented social, educational and health situation, leaving dramatic figures particularly for children in our country; elementary deficiencies in basic conditions at a time when they are in the process of growth. The consequences that these deprivations have in intergenerational terms are serious and the way to face a recovery is through an inclusive project and majorities from the State, also in the educational field”, he concluded.
