Sandra Oblitas: our country model has inclusive education

The Minister of University Education explained that there are six opportunities that high school graduates have to apply and be able to enter a university.

The Minister of University Education, Sandra Oblitas, rejected the claims of a sector of the opposition whose candidate has spoken out in favor of the privatization of education, indicating that the country model that the Bolivarian Government has is inclusion and the guarantee of access to universities by the student population.

He made this point in the program Café en la Mañana, which is broadcast on VTV, in which he indicated that when the Bolivarian revolution was not present, “in the best of cases, in the years before university, 30 percent of those who graduated as a bachelor. That is an exclusion model and we even have data from years in which only 8 percent entered. That means 92 percent exclusion.”

In contrast, he said that currently there is talk of 100 percent inclusion, which - he specified - has to do with the model, with some conditions, with a development model, with a way of understanding what rights are. .

“There you have Argentina, it is a clear, palpable, everyday example for us, close to what it means to overturn the logic of the State. We are, without a doubt, in the dynamics of what inclusion is, of the defense of a model (…), we must be clear about what they intend,” he said.

In Oblitas' opinion, it is necessary for the population to be clear about what a certain sector, contrary to the inclusive model, intends to achieve. “They feel that their power has been taken away from them, they do not talk about rights, they talk about privileges, about castes, they assume that only a few have rights,” he warned.

Internal tests are not authorized

Oblitas also referred to “internal tests”, which he said are not authorized in principle.

“Entry is done through the National Admission System, which is what universities do. There are some universities that have internal agreements that apply, which are contractual agreements, etc. But it is not that we are authorizing internal testing. That is not authorized by the university system,” he stressed.

The head of University Education said that ultimately the model of access to all public universities is through SNI, however, she said that there are some specialized universities that have their own internal mechanism, such as UNES. “They have specific evaluations due to the nature of the training.”

Collective training

Oblitas also explained that the National Council of Universities (CNU), which brings together all universities of study, is guiding its meetings to facilitate the collective construction of academic training in the country, with respect to the National Admission System.

“What we are there is guaranteeing the entry of our boys to the university they want,” he said, explaining that last Tuesday there was a meeting on the subject at the CNU.

Six opportunities to enter university

He explained what the admission process to university education is like and, in this regard, he said that there are up to six options that are offered to the high school graduate to place in the system.

“That means that in some of those six options that you have placed, you will surely have a link to the acceptance of that university place. There are more than 339 opportunities, places, quotas,” Oblitas explained.

However, he clarified that if “everyone aspires to the same training program at the same university it is mathematically impossible,” but access to any option that has been applied out of the six in total is guaranteed.
