Independent organization calls for rejection of Socialist education program in Spain

.- An independent Spanish organization “Professionals for Ethics (PFE)” has issued a report on the content of the controversial course “Education for Citizenship” arguing that the proposed education program be rejected by parents and by citizens in general.

In a recent press release, the organization slammed the government-sponsored course for attempting to interfere in the “moral formation of young people - a right that belongs to parents and not to the Ministry of Education.”

PFE also reaffirmed its commitment to continue working to educate parents and encourage them to reject the Socialist material.

Jaime Urcelay, a spokesman for PFE, said, “We support formation in virtues necessary for social life and for living together in peace but we strongly oppose this course in its current implementation because it constitutes an ideological instrument at the service of the current government.”

The organization listed a series of reasons for rejecting the “Education for Citizenship” course, including its interference in the moral formation of students, its lack of reference to universal truths and to the common good, its disregard for religions traditions and the transcendent dimension of the person and its insistence on an inappropriate understanding of democracy in schools, thus undermining the authority of teachers.
