Socialist education in Spanish schools?
Mother presents first case of conscientious objection to Socialist education course in Spain

.- Lourdes Perez, a mother of four school-age children, has become the first person in the Spanish region of Catalonia to file for conscientious objection to the controversial course “Education for Citizenship,” which thousands of Spaniards have labeled Socialist propaganda.

According to the organization “Professionals for Ethics,” this first case of conscientious objection has been filed at the Jesus-Maria Sant Andreu School in Barcelona.

Lourdes Perez says she has objected to the course precisely because she wants her children to be good citizens.  “This course will not make them better citizens, but rather it will indoctrinate them with the moral and ideological criteria of the government of the day,” she said.  “And this is not an option, it is an imposition to which we cannot consent,” Perez added.

Professionals for Ethics also reported that another case of conscientious objection exists in Aragon, although the parents in question have opted to remain anonymous in order to avoid being the target of reprisals by the government.
