(en) Catalunia embat: We defend public and democratic education! Manifesto and table calling for the Yellow Assembly. (ca) [machine translation]

Date 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 teachers.

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 quality school.

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.
