Alberto Sileoni

Alberto Sileoni (born in 1952) is an Argentine academic and policy maker, currently the President's Minister of Education.

The election of a center-left Peronist, Nestor Kirchner, resulted in Sileoni's appointment as Vice Minister of Education in June 2003, a post he held until Minister Daniel Filmus transferred him to the City of Buenos Aires, in March 2006. He served as Education Minister for Mayor Jorge Telerman until Filmus declared his candidacy for Mayor, in early 2007; considering his friendship with Filmus a potential conflict of interest (when Mayor Telerman sought reelection), Sileoni resigned in February of that year.

The election of Kirchner's wife, Senator Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner as President in late 2007 resulted in Sileoni's appointment as second-in-command for Education Minister Juan Carlos Tedesco, a UNESCO official. A disappointing showing in the June 2009 mid-term elections en 2009 and a subsequent cabinet-shake-up, however, led to Sileoni's appointment as Education Minister in replacement of Tedesco, who was made Director of the Ministry's Planning and Evaluation Unit.
