Court rules in favor of conscientious objection involving controversial class

.- The Supreme Court of Asturias ruled this week parents have a right to conscientiously object to the controversial school course Education for Citizenship.

In their ruling, the Court rejected a petition by a state attorney and by local Asturian officials who argued that conscientious objection was not a legitimate reason for parents to keep their kids out of the class.

According to a statement by the Spanish Forum on the Family, the ruling confirms the right of parents to object to Education for Citizenship and that such a right is constitutional, despite efforts by the Ministry of Education to prevent parents from exercising it.

The Forum also reported that more than 500 requests for conscientious objection have been filed in Asturias, with more than 21,000 requests filed throughout the country.
