After investigations in various private universities, it has been detected a disproportionate increase in charges to students.
Rene Ramirez, head of the Secretariat of Higher Education, Science, Technology and Innovation (Senescyt) will send tomorrow to the Council of Higher Education (CES) standards to regulate the increases made in private universities, and to allocate the surplus in reinvestment of those centers.
Ramirez estimates that the regulation may be adopted on a maximum of 15 days after his arrival to the CES , following the socialization with sectors of students and rectors.
“70% of the tuition of the private universities is concentrated in the richest 30% (of the population) and only a 4% of poor people enter to these universities,” the official justified.
He also added that transparency in information from these study centers regarding reinvestment in the own university will be demanded, as long as “it is nonprofit.”
