Macri Tasks Argentine Teachers with Showing Students How to Work as a Team

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine President Mauricio Macri said Monday before teachers and students from all over the country that although Argentines have always been recognized for their “individual talents,” they have found it difficult to work as a team on “dreams” that include all of society.

“You, our dear teachers, have the task of transforming that curiosity and excitement into the capacity to create, to innovate and work as a team,” said the president during the ceremony to present the Argentine Teachers Awards, which recognize teams of educators who have achieved improvements in the school performance of students.

Macri acknowledged that his countrymen have generally “lacked” the concept of working as a team.

“We’ve always been recognized for our individual talents and we’ve been lacking in getting encouraged to work shoulder to shoulder on a team for greater dreams that include everyone,” he emphasized.

The president said that nobody should doubt that the tool with the “greatest capacity for transformation” is public education as a “true equalizer” of opportunities.

“That’s the road to follow. Losing our fears, our prejudices, opening ourselves up to what’s happening in the world ... Because clearly we can’t experience the world as a threat, but rather as a challenge,” he said.

Macri went on to say that what will provide Argentines with the opportunity to make progress is “the education we’re receiving and we’re going to receive, which is what gives you true freedom.”

On the other hand, the president said that another “basic” element is to make a commitment to the truth.

“It’s tough ... but it’s what challenges you. When you accept where you’re stuck and what your problems are and move forward to resolve them is when you grow. If you want to hide them, that’s like building up a timebomb that sooner or later you’re not going to be able to escape,” he said.
