Re: Follow-up to Decade at the local and national levels

Me alegra saludarte desde Panamá donde laboro en la Dirección Nacional de
Perfeccionamiento Docente del Ministerio de Educación. Tengo a mi cargo la
coordinación de capacitación de docentes, directores y supervisores para
esducar en derechos humanos (EDH).

A partir del año 1995 se logró modificar la legislación escolar para
incluir los derechos humanos como un tema trasversal en la Educ. Basica
General y Media. Este año todas las escuelas del país recibieron los
nuevos programas curriculares con esta innovación. Ahora estamos
trabajando en la creación de una Red Nacional de docentes promotores de
EDH cuya iniciativa cuenta con el apoyo del Convenio Ministerio de
Educación-Instituto interamericano de Derechos Humanos (IIDH). Se capacita
en cascada o sea a deleggados de regiones educativas para que luego ellos
lo multipliquen en sus escuelas.

Pienso que nos puede ayudar mucho si se logra intercambiar experiencias
con otros paises con procesos similares ya que pensamos lograr instalar en
cada región educativa un comite regional de desarrollo profesional para la
sistematización de experiencias exitosas.

Hasta pronto.

Greetings from Panama where I work in the National Directorate of
Educational Improvement at the Ministry of Education. One of my
responsibilities is the coordination of qualification of teachers,
headmasters and inspectors in human rights education (HRE).

Since 1995 we have tried to change the education law to include human
rights as a cross-curricular subject at the primary and secondary levels.
This year all schools in the country received this innovative curriculum.
Now we are working to create a National Network of educators who promote
HRE, an initiative that is supported by an agreement between the Ministry
of Education and the Inter-American Institute of Human Rights (IIDH). By
training respresentatives of school districts that subsequently train
teachers in their schools, we hope to achieve a mulitiplier effect.

I think that it can help us much if countries with similar approaches can
exchange experiences with others, as we hope to manage to establish in
each school district a regional comittee for professional development in
order to systematise successful experiences.
