Venezuelan Minister of Education Maryann Hanson reported on Thursday that in the next few days a "scope" would be released in order to relax the implementation of Resolution 058 on the establishment of educational councils.
The news came after a meeting held in her office with the board of the Network of Parents and Guardians, who expressed their concern over the regulation.
While reiterating that the Resolution is legal and the outcome of debate, the senior government authority promised to review the contents in order to dispel any doubts and fit it into the requirements of educational centers.
Hanson seemed to be open to discussion on the contents of the regulation, particularly as the Final Provision No. 2 provides for one year for revision.
Oil and gas; gold and diamonds; coltan, coal, iron, bauxite, copper: the Venezuelan economy is extractive, as it relies on taking mineral substances from the earth for sale or trade.
