Report on literacy program
On 25 October 2016 the Organization of Ibero-American States for Education, Science and Culture (OEI) and the General Office of Special Programs of the Presidency (Digepep) presented a report on the 2013- 2016 Literacy Plan that sought to teach around 800,000 adults to read and write.
According to the report, at the end of 2015 a total of 940,583 people who could not read or write registered for the program and the total number of trainees completing the program was 525,375.
Digepep director Domingo Contreras said that the program had been of great value to society with more than 60,000 facilitators in the National Literacy Plan.
However, the report author and deputy rector at Apec University, Inmaculada Madera, said that although the Plan contained some very positive aspects, she criticized some of its weaknesses such as the fact that many of the facilitators were unqualified and did not receive training, and delays in their payment.
