The Covenant of the State is complicated by the autonomous regions
Each passing day, it cooled down a little bit more expectations about the possibility of getting a great covenant of the State in educational matters covering all pending subjects of the Spanish school. Wednesday was the minister Íñigo Méndez de Vigo who said that, despite the fact that "in the street exudes a willingness to reach an agreement", the hoped-for stability "only" be achieved if you reach a consensus "on nuclear issues".
"I don't think it was possible to reach an agreement on all aspects", he said. That means get down to the reality and assume that PP and PSOE, Citizens, and United we Can, can never give his arm to twist in issues such as the concerts, the Religion or the Spanish as a vehicular language, in which they have points of view that are radically different.
Maybe there's no need to focus on these points, which in reality are not strictly educational and which they have not done more to prevent the understanding over the decades. But different educational sources remind us that, if the covenant is confined to topical issues, runs the risk of staying in a string of "common places" and be as "cosmetic", as those that have been reached in some autonomous communities. A photo to look good and little else. Another error that can fall is to erase everything to go back to what earlier, as notes the deputy of the PSOE Mari Luz Martinez Seijo: "If we remain anchored in a model of LOE or Lomce, we're wasting time".The activation of the red button
Mendez de Vigo intervened yesterday at the request of the Education Commission of Congress to close the round of hearings of experts who during this year have been passed by the Lower Chamber. It was a difficult day, on the eve of the activation of the red button that is the article 155, and the goal was to temper the emotions, find points of union and not to influence the issues that cause disagreements. Why read a list of measures that are a common denominator. But then the shapes are matizables, the fund is shared by all.
Spoke of the "necessity of achieving a stable funding"; to give greater autonomy to the schools; expanding the squares of zero-to-three years; "to improve the coordination in the changes of the stages of education"; to bet more for the FP, or reinforce the direction of the education centres. Who can not agree? Who is opposed to the use of new technologies in the school, the improvement of the learning of foreign languages or the bet by the innovation? Who doesn't want more scholarships?
"we Differ in the way on how to achieve the goals and that's why we're here," summed up the minister. And pulled out of the sleeve their first barrier: the article 27 of the Constitution, which upholds the freedom of parents to choose the kind of education they want for their children; the concerts, in fact.
again, the castling. "How can the Government embark on a territorial pact if, with the application of the 155, there is no longer a territorial consensus?", did you see Joan Mena, deputy of city council Can.
"it Is impossible to be both with Citizens and with the nationalists", he lamented, to the output, Marta Martín, deputy educational training orange.
The minister said that he will abide by the opinion that is approved in the Plenary session of the Congress, the germ of a new education act, it is understood that also a minimum.
In reality, any firm agreement should focus on the faculty, which defines the 30% of the performance of the students, as it takes care of remembering the spokesman for Education of the PP in the Congress, Sandra Moneo.
the premise of The Government, respect to the teachers, follows the rule of the three: "autonomy", "authority" and "appreciation". But no one specific how we are going to "attract the best professionals," recognize a career that is non-existent in the present, or improve the selection process. MIR educational not to speak.
"there are Still those who believe that a minister of Education can do anything", he shrugged his shoulders Méndez de Vigo, "but you can very little".Updated Date: 16 November 2018, 08:01
