The new Constitution of Ecuador currently being drafted could make it obligatory for all schools in the country to offer the course “Education for Citizenship,” which has been rejected by thousands of parents in Spain because it indoctrinates children with secularism, relativism, legal positivism and gender ideology.
According to pro-family reporters, some Ecuadoran schools have been experimenting with Education for Citizenship for the past two years, and article 347 of the future Constitution would make it obligatory.
The article in question affirms that in the area of education, it is the responsibility of the State “to assure that all schools impart an education in citizenship, sexuality and the environment based on rights.”
According to sources consulted by the Catholic News Agency, for two years some children in Ecuador have been attending the Education for Citizenship course, financed through an agreement between the governments of Ecuador and Spain.
The Ecuadoran daily “El Universo” reported that 640 teachers in the country have been trained to teach the course and teachers may be required to be certified in the course in order to qualify for promotions and raises.
