The regional coordinator and spokesperson for Citizens in the Balearic Islands, Patricia Guasphas participated this Sunday in the demonstration held in Barcelona together with ‘Escuela de Todos’, where he has assured that the linguistic model of the Balearic Islands “attempts against educational freedom”. For Guasp, “the model of linguistic immersion that is practiced in Catalonia, and that the Pacte parties have transferred to the Balearic Islands with the Autonomous Education Law approved in February, violates the law, against educational freedom and against the quality of teaching”.
“From the Balearic Islands we have been denouncing the model of monolingualism of President Armengol for a long time, which perpetrated the latest outrage against the freedoms and rights of families with this new educational law,” said the leader of Cs in the Balearic Islands, who stressed that “This is a law that shields Catalan and completely eliminates Spanish as the vehicular language in the classroom.”
The Ciudadanos spokeswoman recalled that last May she traveled to Brussels to criticize the “multiple linguistic abuses of the Balearic Government” with this new educational law, which “violates the rights of families,” reports the Europa Press agency.
“From the liberal formation we will continue to fight to defend the rights and freedoms of students and families,” he concluded.
