The First Lady of the Republic, Gabriela de Bukele, began on this day the delivery of tablets for kindergarten and elementary students as part of the commitment of the government of President Nayib Bukele to transform the public education system.
The delivery of the devices took place at the Puerto de La Libertad Nursery School, where Gabriela de Bukele shared with the benefited students and her parents.
«This is a very important tool, and it is part of your responsibility to be checking what your children do with this tool. The tablet is not a babysitter, it is not a caregiver, and it is not the teacher, because that is why the rest of us who are in charge of this exist. It is important that they learn to use this beautiful resource and that they will be able to enjoy it,” said the first lady, Gabriela de Bukele, to the parents.
All the tablets are high-end and include a protective case, an operating system that allows their functionality, protection against blue light, a parental control function, and dimensions that are suitable for children.
With the delivery of the tablets, the government complies with the provisions of Article 47 of the Crecer Juntos Law, which establishes that the state must guarantee the right to quality, inclusive, and comprehensive education from Early Childhood, including equitable and inclusive access to the digital environment.
“The devices have playful applications and educational sites installed for each age that stimulate creativity, promote the formation of basic skills, and promote learning through play,” the Office of the First Lady detailed in a statement.
Through the My New School reform and the Links to Education program, the government has guaranteed that 100% of students in the second and third cycles of basic education and high school have their computers so that they can develop academically.
For his part, Carlos Urias, father of one of the nursery school students, thanked the government for the actions it takes to guarantee early childhood education.
“It is a great work on behalf of God, our president, Nayib Bukele, and the first lady, Gabriela de Bukele. We commit as parents to teaching them. Never in our lives did we think we would have something like this; before, they were only promises, and we had never seen this reality. We feel happy,” said Urías.
