The Generalitat celebrates in style the decision of the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia (TSJC) known this Monday and that considers that both the law and the decree law on linguistic use in the classroom recently approved in the Catalan Parliament to shield Catalan in colleges can be unconstitutional. For the Minister of Education, Josep Gonzàlez-Cambray, "this is first news and a great victory".
The person in charge of Education has thus celebrated that the court "confirms the impossibility of applying percentages with languages" and understands that this supposes "a first step so that 25% of Spanish is not applied in any classroom."
For Cambray, the paralysis of the forced execution of the December 2020 ruling that sets a minimum of 25% Spanish in school "reaffirms the Catalan school model."
During a brief appearance before the media, the counselor had words of "recognition of the work of the Government to approve the decree law and thanks to the parliamentary groups that have helped" to push forward the linguistic regulations.
Asked about the fact that the case could end up before the Constitutional Court, the head of Education has insisted that "we are clearly facing a first great victory that says that in the country's classrooms we will not apply 25% of Spanish." In addition, he has recalled that "the two laws have unanimous opinions, they are entirely constitutional", so he has been calm about following the steps in court. In addition, he has highlighted that he sees it unlikely that personalized complaints will arrive for the non-application of the sentence.
