Justice maintains 25% of Spanish where it was already applied as a precaution

Barcelona, ​​September 22 (EFE).- The Generalitat’s Secretary-General of Education, Patrícia Gomà, has assured that they will appeal the two orders of the Supreme Court of Catalonia (TJSC) requiring two schools where the measure is already being cautiously applied to preserve 25% of Castilian.

Gomà, in statements to the press on Thursday, insisted that there is a new “regulatory framework” that renders the two court orders “not applicable” and that the TSJC has expressed itself to that effect “in several resolutions” from last July, and has accused the court of “legal filibustering” and “distortion of arguments”.

“We and the whole country are defending this regulation, this new regulatory framework,” noted Gomà, adding that what the court is saying is that the centers where the 25% was previously applied “must prove” that “this revision of the language projects has been carried out , as provided by the new regulations”.

The Secretary General of Education has pointed out that the TSJC had so far refused to accept new precautions in its July rulings, and that it has now decided on situations ahead of the new legal framework approved by the Generalitat at 25% to raffle.

Gomà has also stated that they are “in contact with the education centers” that are currently applying the 25% and that they will convene it next week, although they had scheduled a meeting tomorrow, to “explain the legal arguments against the resolution “. .”

With regard to language learning, the Secretary-General of Education has indicated that these should be decided “with a pedagogical criterion” and that they are against the “extreme and infinite jurisdiction” to which the court leads.

The TSJC has made this statement for the first time in this way about the schools subject to precautionary measures, after recognizing last June that the penalty imposed on 25% of the lessons in Spanish cannot be applied after the new law that has been passed by parliament, which is now in the hands of the Constitutional Court.

Pending a ruling by the TC on the constitutionality of the new law, the Generalitat had requested the repeal of these measures in schools where 25% of Spanish was practiced by court decision, but the controversial TSJC boardroom believes that the new legislation “does not necessarily affect the precautionary decision taken”.

The TJSC’s orders “expressly warn the administration that any changes it intends to make to these measures must be approved by this court.”
