Pablo Caggiani, leader of the Broad Front and former director of Primary in the last government, wrote on his personal Twitter account: “The worst use of evaluation in education. Until now no one had been so encouraged in Uruguay. Gurises do the tests calm. There is no cup or anything. Provides information to know where to improve. The adult world putting its priorities on the gurises “.
