Keys to fighting poverty
As we try to solve the problems we have to fulfill at the bottom of the social pyramid, and look for compensation alternatives that respect the technical capabilities we have, it would be useful to start discussing the society we want to build and how long we will continue to accept that millions of our fellow human beings are treated in this unforgivable way.
Our country suspended classes face-to-face in March 2020 and was the first to return to the San Juan class, five months later, with the subsequent closure.

In order not to “jump into the void”, it is essential that efforts aim at achieving a minimum but sufficient degree of internal integration of the production structure.
For national development, it is clear that education in general and science education in particular, play a central role. Without education, development is simply unthinkable. Organizing our society requires knowing which country we want. If we note the rallies and counter-rallies of science politics over the past 30 years, it seems that we don’t know clearly.
