She said through her Facebook account that she accepted the appointment, as she has 70 years of experience in the country's education sector.

“It goes without saying that it is in the public domain, in the professional field of education and in the political field I have never held a position without earning, in full, the salary and this will not be the exception ”, she wrote.

She also described as false the first indications about her s age and the salary he would be earning in Meduca.

“I begin by indicating that the vertiginously stated in the social networks that I have been appointed as a consultant with a salary of $7,000 and that I am 93 years old is false. The salary is $4000 and I am about to turn 95 this October, ”said Richa de Torrijos.

70 years of experience in Education in Panama? What happened along the way? The Education system here has never gotten a fair shake. Independent thinking young college graduates need to in charge of education in Panama. The corruption in government needs to end and disperse more money to schools and teachers.

Well in all the years of her tenure they could not manage textbooks, sanitary bathrooms and water supply and a conducive learning environment for so many poor up in the Comarca ( or in Boquete and the surrounds for that matter) .....the system lacks all the way around.   Teachers up in the Comarca and students as well have to risk their lives to get to school on dangerous roads, footpaths and rivers that have to be crossed.    It is shameful.  The country's children deserve the ability to learn and achieve..........period.   It's basic !
