(en) Catalunia embat: We defend public and democratic education! Manifesto and table calling for the Yellow Assembly. (ca) [machine translation]
Thu, 2 Nov 2017 16:38:22 +0200
Embat, the Libertarian Organization of Catalonia, supports the demonstration convened by
the Yellow Assembly on November 11. We demand public education, democratic, coeducadora,
inclusive, egalitarian and secular yes or no. ---- Manifest of the mobilization of 11N: We
demand 6%. We defend public and democratic education! ---- Dear and beloved, ---- We
address you to invite you to participate in the demonstration in defense of public
education on November 11 (17h, University Pl.) As well as in its construction by
disseminating the call and seeking membership of the entities (AMPA, educational center,
group, etc.) in which you participate. ---- At this point, no one escapes that the
privatization policies and the Department's cuts are laminating public education in that
country. School segregation is one of the worst hassles suffered by the current
educational system due to these privatization policies. It is urgent to open the debate on
the inconvenience of the dual network, the main factor that causes the segregation of
school in our country.
There is a national pact against school segregation that gradually undermines the dual
network of our education system, under no circumstances should it be budgeted with public
money, private-concerted, a system that has already been shown to be unfair and segregating.
Another derivative of these privatizing policies that we are currently suffering as an
educational community is the vertiginous loss of democracy in the centers.
The LEC consecrated the bodies of directors and a pyramidal and hierarchical management
that emulated the private-concerted, the LOMCE represented a key again in this line where
the directors perform the functions of heads of staff and representatives of the
Administration , opening public education again to the old client networks and
arbitrariness. The Department must comply with the resolutions of the Parliament of
Catalonia and once again remove the Pilot Plan from the substitutes (enough hiring!). In
order to recover democracy in the centers, it is also vital to withdraw the Decree of
Directions and the decree of templates urgently, to disobey the LOMCE and to open a
genuine debate within the educational community (as proposed by the ILPE and the
Extraordinary Debate) that allows to recover the most distinctive feature of the Catalan
public school: democracy in schools, with school councils and cloisters of truly binding
Quite precariousness: we ask for a system of access to the fair public function, which
does not imply a hidden ERO of the thousands of workers that are already in the
administration in temporary conditions and that have already demonstrated their ability
over the years and professionalism. A pact of stability of all those interins that wish to
go parallel to the announcement of the oppositions is required.
In the face of the repressive involution that we have experienced in recent weeks, the
Educational Community has been one of the most fundamental actors in the defense of
freedom and against repression. Faced with the violation of the most basic and fundamental
rights, such as the right to vote and express delivery, thousands of teachers, students,
parents have been organized peacefully; and beyond their ideology and their national
feelings have been put together with thousands of citizens so that the schools remained
open to guarantee the right to decide of all.
In the last few weeks we have seen how the State is threatening to apply 155 in Catalonia,
this can mean that the teaching competences become directly controlled by the central
State. The education minister Íñigo Mendez de Vigo has already threatened to bring the
education ministry to the courts under the accusation that the teachers of Catalonia
indoctrinate and manipulate history in their classes.
These accusations seriously undermine the professional and personal dignity of all
teaching staff and the entire education system of Catalonia. It will be necessary to give
a massive and democratic response to a State that criminalizes and defames all those who
fight every day to achieve a free, democratic, Catalan, coeducational, intercultural and
It is for all this that now, more than ever, the educational community we mobilize once
again in defense of the best guarantee to preserve democracy, social cohesion and
diversity: education of ownership and public management.
Given the cuts and permanent aggression to their quality, by the Department of Education
and the Ministry of Education, we demand that the administration assume its
responsibilities and invest investment in education up to the one that marks the Catalan
law: 6% of GDP, which is the average investment of the European Union.
Given the democratic involution that we are suffering from the central government, we
demand total disobedience to the LOMCE and go out to the streets as many times as
necessary to defend the Catalan school.
We are clear about the educational community: now we decide on public education Yes or Yes!
We want to build the public education that our society deserves .
And for that we immediately demand an emergency plan for completely reverse the cuts and
the process of undercover privatization that is undergoing public education.
