Chile chooses to appoint someone with (self admitted) experience;
“I went to Colegio del Verbo Divino. And I can tell you that many of the students in my class were complete idiots....."Now Nicolás Eyzaguirre is their Education Minister, and still among them;
Diego Vela, last year’s president of the Student Federation of Universidad Católica (FEUC), was among those who said the position should have been awarded to someone with...experience in the education sector.
“I believe that the biggest mistake in Chilean politics has been the overwhelming emphasis on economy over social impact,” Vela told The Santiago Times.Right, 'economy' doesn't have 'social impact'. This is a tough room.
President of the Student Federation of Universidad Católica (FEUC) Naschla Aburman was more explicit in her criticism.
“If we had doubts with Eyzaguirre, with the naming of the new undersecretary [Claudia Peirano] we have certainty and antecedents that confirm our profound mistrust,” she told Radio Cooperativa. “This is a clear signal that [the Bachelet administration] is going to go in the complete opposite direction to what we all hoped.”The audacity of hope?
