16,000 teachers will be trained as part of the second phase of the training plan for the Growing Together Law

On September 9, phase two of the Training Plan of the Growing Together Law began, with which, for the first time, more than 16,000 teachers who teach early childhood will be trained. The initiative led by the first lady of the republic, Gabriela de Bukele, is part of the My New School educational reform.

Children and adolescents will benefit from an educational transformation thanks to My New School, a plan that was announced by President Nayib Bukele on September 7.

Phase two of the Training Plan for the Grow Together Law will begin with the training of more than 2,500 teachers responsible for educating children up to eight years of age in the departments of Chalatenango and La Libertad. This training will guide children towards learning diversity.

“This is a historic moment that we are living through. We are transforming the educational system because we need it to respond to the needs of reality. It is a comprehensive transformation, as President Nayib Bukele has told you,” said the first lady, Gabriela de Bukele, during the launch of the second phase of the plan.

The leader of the initiative explained that My New School will consist of providing technological tools to improve the education of children and young people, as well as changes in infrastructure, health, and nutrition.

“Today we are here so that they have the privilege of training and being part of this necessary transformation for the new generations, and witnessing how boys and girls are discovering the world,” said the first lady.
