Venezuela se queda sin maestros

Como una tromba, Isabel Carmona recorre los pasillos de un sofocante edificio prefabricado, que por falta de presupuesto por casi cuatro décadas ha sido la “sede provisional” de la escuela de Administración y Contaduría de la Universidad Central de Venezuela, la mayor y más antigua del país.

Carmona se dedica incansablemente a asesorar a profesores y estudiantes, dirigir estudios de postgrado y hasta a resolver problemas administrativos como la falta de insumos, entre ellos los que obligan a los estudiantes a tolerar la molestia de recibir clases en aulas que tiene años con el aire acondicionado dañado.

Ese esfuerzo no parece hacer mella en Carmona, una profesora jubilada de 61 años, que sigue impartiendo clases en una de las escuelas más golpeadas por otro tipo de escasez, aún más determinante, la falta de docentes.

Sumida en una crisis económica con una inflación galopante, severos problemas de escasez de alimentos y bienes básicos y una contracción del aparato productivo que tiende agravarse, han convertido a Venezuela, otrora una nación receptora de inmigrantes, en un territorio inhóspito para los empleados de alto nivel que se van del país en busca de mejores condiciones de vida.

Los profesores universitarios, sobre todo los mejores calificados, se han sumado a esa fuga de cerebros, ahuyentados por tener en su mayoría ingresos cercanos al salario mínimo mensual como consecuencia de crónicos presupuestos deficitarios y la tardanza del gobierno en aprobar aumentos distintos a la escala más baja.
