41,000 objections to Education for Citizenship registered in Spain

.- The organization Professionals for Ethics reported this week that at the conclusion of the 2007-08 school year, more than 41,000 objections to Education for Citizenship had been registered in Spain and that the opposition to the controversial course was “without precedence” in the country.

Leonor Tamayo, who is leading the organization’s effort to assist parents in objecting to the course, said, “Parents from all over Spain have stood up, literally, to tell the government they will not allow it to keep moving forward with its totalitarian zeal, that Education for Citizenship is an illegitimate intrusion of the State into an area that is exclusive to parents.”

He said the organization is sure that the number of objections goes well beyond the 41,000 registered because many parents object to the course without communicating with any organization but rather directly to the school.
