Bishop encourage families to oppose new education law

.- Bishop Antonio Dorado of Malaga and Chairman of the Bishops’ Committee on Teaching and Catechism in Spain called on parents this week to participate in the national debate and to make their opposition known to lawmakers to a new law on education that would make the State the “sole legitimate promoter of centers of learning and the exclusive ideological determiner of what children should and should not know.” In a pastoral letter, the bishops warned that “from the Christian point of view in particular and the religious in general, the constitutional right of parents to freely request religious education for their children in school is in danger.”

After emphasizing the urgency for “families to get involved in this issue and demand their human and constitutional rights,” Bishop Dorado called on parents to “participate, each one according to his or her possibilities, in the debate and to take the steps you consider necessary and pertinent, always with respect for our constitution.”

“Remember that the right to educate your children and the freedom to elect the type of education that you consider most in accord with your convictions is in danger,” he added.
