Pasión docente, deserción ausente

By: Marco Aurelio Rangel Ostos - #9

21 / August / 2014 COMMENTS

Empecemos porque los docentes sean reconocidos socialmente, que su ingreso económico les permita entregarse con pasión a sus estudiantes, que tal ingreso les facilite dedicar tiempo a investigar y preparar cada encuentro de aprendizaje. Existimos docentes que queremos hacerlo mejor, dedicarnos mucho más, pero debemos salir rápidamente de un centro a otro para obtener una segunda, y muchas veces hasta una tercera entrada de dinero que sostenga a nuestras familias. Así como defiendo lo anterior, también creo que este nivel económico digno debe alcanzarse a través de evaluaciones de desempeño continuas, revisiones trimestrales o semestrales tal vez (Medición objetiva de Indicadores de Gestión). Cada centro debe contar con un equipo experto que evalúe y potencie a los docentes destacados; crear la cultura del bienhacer. El docente que consigue resultados positivos de sus estudiantes, debe ser reconocido. Si el centro educativo se ocupa de destacar las buenas practicas docentes que surjan, pronto el personal buscará imitarlas e incluso mejorarlas. Finalmente, un docente incentivado por su entorno, dejará fluir su pasión, así el ambiente escolar se tornará atractivo y de calidad. Seguro estoy que más temprano que tarde disminuirá y desaparecerá la deserción escolar.
